Description

A primary producer of peaches in Shepparton discusses diversified farming and growing conditions including the need for irrigation and subsequent environmental considerations. We investigate the climate needs, weed and pest control, water management, and the re-use of factory waste. In Lismore we talk to a macadamia producer about his farming operations, processing and value-adding as well as integrated pest management, soil erosion controls, conflict with urban encroachment, and factory noise and waste controls. Seasonal work and noise pollution are also covered as we follow the products from the farm to the factory to our tables at home.
