People need to get their facts straight before they make a story like this. This fire was started from the impact of a lithium battery in the drone hitting the ground below because the drone was at around 100 metres high. The drone was mechanically interfered with from the new norcia space station which was within the line of sight of where the drone was flying. That is what caused the drone to loose control and crash. Also the drone pilots had not grabbed what was left and taken off. They were there the entire time cooperating with the fire officers and farmers.

"If you have experience you're in a better position to hold management to account and make a clear decision,"
What a load of rubbish Vern, the directors fee's are too good not to have is the truth. The board has made some real silly decisions while you have been on the board.
Growers would like cheaper handling fee's in the first place not rebates.
An interesting development for some cropping industries. For dryland cereal cropping, where 20-20% of soil moisture drains below the root zone and 20-30% is lost through soil surface evaporation, 're-design' seems more appropriate than 'stop-gap' measures. How much R&D is being invested in pasture cropping where both sources of water loss can be eliminated to produce a complementary red meat product enjoying higher demand than grain. And of course the deleterious effects of deep percolation on soil acidification, dryland salinity and ground water contamination are also alleviated.......
Nothing but shameless self promotion. Day dreaming by people who do not know the sharp end of profitability and sustainability and trying to dazzle the punters with shiny things.
