To report on the final season that was monitored by the FAST project.
The 1995 cropping season was the final season that will be monitored by the FAST Project, and ironically it was also the best. 1995 provided a combination of good yields and prices, returning good gross margins to farmers, as well as adding another full year of excellent data to the large database that has been collected over the last four cropping seasons.

For projects like FAST to succeed there has to be a lot of input from the farmers and I'd like to thank all the FAST farmers for their co-operation over the years.
