The group meets 8-10 times a year and members consist of farmers, tenants, agronomists and employees. Each year one member acts as the “monitor farm” and this involves the group visiting their farm three times a year; autumn, spring and pre-harvest. The other meetings involve a mixture of farm visits such as trail plots, grain storage and processing sites as well as guest speakers from the industry. The group is trying to establish a bench marking system.
