Case study - Clint Badoco - Setting up for profits

Clint Badoco wants to make the highest profit he can from rice. In the 2017/18 season, he drill sowed 400 ha of rice for the first time. Traditionally he has dry broadcast his entire rice crop, with good results. However, Clint believed with a change to drill sowing, he could achieve the same yields, decrease his water use and increase the total area he could grow with available water. This would result in a greater profit overall.
