Re: The War on Willows

Ghosta, we all know that Duane is refering to the policy of removing the willows, it's obvious disasterous consequences, it's incompetent implementation and the poor logic and lamentable processes that resulted in its conception. If you dont want criticism then possibly you should avoid foolish beha...

Aspects of NSF are being taken up by all sorts of farmers in varying degrees. This is the success that NSF is having. There may not be an identifiable ground swell uptake of orthodox NSF principals per se but make no mistake, NSF is out there and is being noticed by more and more farmers both conven...

Re: The War on Willows

What a well considered and appropriate comment. I just wish more people would actually think through situations logically taking all facts and relevant data into account before deciding to jump on the " kill/destroy ask questions later" bandwagon. Often the knee jerk reaction is 98% based on status ...

Re: The War on Willows

This was a great read and a fantastic and necessary debate. Thanks to Ghosta and Sceptic for sharing your opinions and reasoning’s, it gives us an insight into the minds of the people who we must battle and overcome. Obviously here in Western Australia it is dry and I have no first hand experiences ...

Re: Exhaust emissions fertiliser

Thanks Duane, it is nice to be able to say " I told you so" but that is not what we are wanting to say. We are at the very beginning of a journey of discovery and realization. It is way to early to be back slapping and sitting back. We must now formulate a plan to maintain momentum and build on the ...

Re: Hello and starting help, and looking for other WA NSF pe

Hi Greg, Gee, I'm sorry to hear you were so unimpressed with some attitudes which you witnessed on the forum, but I am really glad you are back giving us a second chance. Hopefully whatever it was that disappointed you so much has changed or disappeared. I have come across all sorts of things on the...

Re: Exhaust emissions fertiliser

What a great post Shirley! I just love your passion. Passion comes from belief and faith. Faith comes from trust and self confidence which is earnt and learnt. Like me you have travelled a road, from sceptic to believer and you have made that journey using the stepping stones of discovery of factual...

Re: Exhaust emissions fertiliser

Angela, it's no one’s thread! That was a great link, really interesting. You know what, I should be gracious and say how valuable sceptics are to scientific debate and such and such and so forth. But I can’t be bothered; I just don't have time for sceptics. Those days are long past. I am interested ...
