Trevor grew up on a farm in Coorow and only moved to Bolgart in 1994 when he and his parents bought ‘Waddi Park’. Recently the property has been mainly managed by Trevor and his wife Renae. The Syme’s were aware that most of the farm had non-wetting problems and so in 1996 they bought a DBS air seeder bar for furrow sowing. Unfortunately, this wasn’t enough to combat the problem and with an increase in dry years, it became worse. Although the Syme’s have learnt a lot during this project, when it comes to addressing the big issue of water repellence there is much ‘untrodden ground’.
