Pukekohe farmer named as finalist
BRYAN Hart, of Pukekohe, is one of twenty four of the most outstanding growers and farm advisers from across New Zealand and Australia to take home top honours in the 2015 Syngenta Growth awards.
The awards seek to acknowledge leading farmers and advisors while highlighting their oustanding contribution to agriculture.
According to Paul Luxton, Syngenta Territory Head, Australasia, narrowing down the list of finalists was not an easy feat.
Bryan was drawn from an initial pool of more than 65 high-calibre nominees from across New Zealand and every Australian state. He is a finalist in the Productivity category of the Growth Awards.
Bryan, who is currently employed by Wilcox, is pleased to have been nominated for a Syngenta Growth Award. He’s humbled by the recognition and sees the award as a good opportunity to network with other successful people in the industry.
His approach to driving ‘sold-tonnes-per-hectare’ is to have a deep understanding of each aspect of farm productivity to ensure it is driven efficiently.
Bryan’s productivity, however, is not at the cost of quality. Accepting that market dynamics and requirements change constantly, his years of experience in the potato industry have given him an appreciation of what each different customer needs.
Winners will be selected by an independent and expert panel drawn from across the industry and will be announced at the Growth Awards dinner in Sydney in early December.
Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
