Farmax Scholarships 2017

Each year, Farmax awards a scholarship to a student from Lincoln University, and for the 2017 award we are pleased to be supporting Georgia King.

Georgia King

Georgia is a fourth year BAgSci student conducting an honours project with Derrick Moot, a professor of plant science at Lincoln. Her project aims to build a model for predicting lucerne growth rates. Georgia says “the ability to predict lucerne production with factors such as thermal time would be beneficial to farmers.” “Ultimately, I would like my model to be applicable to many areas of New Zealand.” Good luck with your studies Georgia! We look forward to hearing about the outcome of your project.

2016

Each year Farmax awards post graduate scholarships to students from Lincoln and Massey universities.
This year we are pleased to be supporting Martin Correa Luna working towards a PhD at Massey, and honours student Dave Ingham from Lincoln.
Martin is researching the optimal stocking rate for maximum profitability complying with environmental impact requirements of OAD full-season milking in New Zealand.
Dave’s honours project is investigating the economics of development of marginal hill county up the Rakaia Gorge for a sheep and beef breeding operation.
Good luck and congrats to both of them!

Simon James

Benjamin's research involves developing a system that allows farmers to predict the amount of metabolisable energy in pasture so they can create suitable feed budgets and regimes.
Simon's honours project investigates the integration of crops on New Zealand dairy farms for supplementary feed during lactation.
Good luck and congrats to both of them!
