Richard Brake Consulting assists Corrigin farmer Simon Wallwork in his quest to respond to climate change. Simon is chairman of AgZero2030 – an agriculture-led movement aiming for climate change solutions.
“We are doing everything we can to adapt to climate change – whether we can keep up, I guess that’s the big question. Being involved with my local grower group has been critical for testing ideas and innovations and sharing ideas with my peers. We have made a big swing to barley in our program as it tends to be a more resilient crop and we can sow it with lower frost risk. We relocated our land base - we got rid of a farm next to Corrigin because we were finding we couldn’t produce on the drier seasons on the heavier soil types, so we focused our efforts on the lighter soil types. And with the assistance of our adviser (Richard Brake Consulting principal consultant, Richard Brake), we have reduced the cost structure of our business.” – Farmer Simon Wallwork
