June 2023 -Hub Site Update

  • Like many of the Hub sites hosting the Biomass Connect sites, June has been very dry.
  • Overall, the site was relatively weed free. This was most likely due to the ongoing drought-like conditions that were being experienced across the country in June.
  • There was evidence of growth across the varieties planted, however, it was very stunted by the lack of water.
  • This site was the last to be planted up due to, ironically, it being too wet in the spring months.
  • A  weather station is to be installed.
