Laura Keenan

My role as an agronomist starts at the grass roots level. Total dry matter production produced per hectare drives the capacity of farmland and is an integral part of the decision making process when it comes to developing farm cropping plans and improving farm performance and profitability. Involvement within this process provides a constructive environment for all members of the farm team to contribute to what is commonly a priority goal, to improve the production potential of individual farms, and by default, lifting the performance of the whole primary industry. In addition, this role allows you be a trouble-shooter, combined with a trusted advisor to get the best results for a particular farmer in a particular set of environmental circumstances, and it is this tailored approach that I believe is integral to achieving client success. Each farm and each farmer is different, thus it is one's ability to tailor their technical style which drives large scale outcomes while on farm.

Laura Keenan

My role as an agronomist starts at the grass roots level. Total dry matter production produced per hectare drives the capacity of farmland and is an integral part of the decision making process when it comes to developing farm cropping plans and improving farm performance and profitability. Involvement within this process provides a constructive environment for all members of the farm team to contribute to what is commonly a priority goal, to improve the production potential of individual farms, and by default, lifting the performance of the whole primary industry. In addition, this role allows you be a trouble-shooter, combined with a trusted advisor to get the best results for a particular farmer in a particular set of environmental circumstances, and it is this tailored approach that I believe is integral to achieving client success. Each farm and each farmer is different, thus it is one's ability to tailor their technical style which drives large scale outcomes while on farm.

Currently completing a PhD at Massey but was previously a rural school principal and was heavily involved in facilitating groups of school principals and teachers. The focus of my PhD revolves around measuring change in farmers' self-efficacy while they participated in an agricultural extension activity (based at Riverside Farm) and the impact it might have on future farm system changes. Teaching in rural areas has given me an understanding of the highs and lows experienced within the farming community. I also have a son currently managing one of the Landcorp Farms, so have had a bit to do with sheep and beef farming over the years.

Teaching in rural areas has given me an understanding of the highs and lows experienced within the farming community.

Laura Keenan

My role as an agronomist starts at the grass roots level. Total dry matter production produced per hectare drives the capacity of farmland and is an integral part of the decision making process when it comes to developing farm cropping plans and improving farm performance and profitability. Involvement within this process provides a constructive environment for all members of the farm team to contribute to what is commonly a priority goal, to improve the production potential of individual farms, and by default, lifting the performance of the whole primary industry. In addition, this role allows you be a trouble-shooter, combined with a trusted advisor to get the best results for a particular farmer in a particular set of environmental circumstances, and it is this tailored approach that I believe is integral to achieving client success. Each farm and each farmer is different, thus it is one's ability to tailor their technical style which drives large scale outcomes while on farm.

Laura Keenan

My role as an agronomist starts at the grass roots level. Total dry matter production produced per hectare drives the capacity of farmland and is an integral part of the decision making process when it comes to developing farm cropping plans and improving farm performance and profitability. Involvement within this process provides a constructive environment for all members of the farm team to contribute to what is commonly a priority goal, to improve the production potential of individual farms, and by default, lifting the performance of the whole primary industry. In addition, this role allows you be a trouble-shooter, combined with a trusted advisor to get the best results for a particular farmer in a particular set of environmental circumstances, and it is this tailored approach that I believe is integral to achieving client success. Each farm and each farmer is different, thus it is one's ability to tailor their technical style which drives large scale outcomes while on farm.
