Case study - Clinton Brill - Water use efficiency through high yields
When Clinton Brill’s great grandfather started growing rice in 1924, he would have been mad to think that rice could yield 15 t/ha.
But Clinton is one of a number of growers who achieved a rice yield of 15 t/ha or more in the 2015-16 season. Not only did he average 15.1 t/ha on 36 ha in the 2015-16 season, he averaged 14.3 t/ha over his whole 100 ha crop, & over the last 3 years he has averaged 13.5 t/ha.
What does Clinton do to get the best crop yield he can?
