6.4.19 Wheat farming is not a one size fits all sort of endeavor. Go anywhere in the world and you’ll find farmers who have adapted practices to their soils and their environment, as well as access to nutrients, technology and equipment. In episode 128 of Wheat All About It! entitled: Straight From The Brumby’s Mouth, Peter Thompson, who farms east of Brisbane, Australia, talks about how his rotation is dictated by rainfall, which can vary wildly year to year. You’ll also hear from Nikki Thompson, his wife, who is a life coach, an occupation she can pursue from the farm because of the region’s high speed internet connection.
