A bright spark from Charles Sturt University has big ideas for agricultural management. 

Second year student Liam Norrie believes farmers can get more out of their land by taking a more wholistic approach. 

“There needs to be more emphasis put on pasture utilisation,” Liam Norrie said. 

“It’s about working out what complements your soil and climate and the livestock you’re running.”

His vision has been recognised with a Royal Agricultural Society scholarship.

He says will help him afford to gain the on-farm, practical experience. 

“I recently came back from working with a cotton agronomist in Griffith.” 

“The money really enables me to travel and get the time off work to get the practical experience I need,” he said.
