New Zealand Arable Crops
Here are some pictures of arable crops in New Zealand that I took on my recent trip there (Jan 21st - Jan 27th 2007). The area I visited was the mid Canterbury region around Ashburton.

This one is a marrowfat pea crop

Hey Tascowboy, where have you been in New Zealand? South Island? I stayed 3 months in the area of Blenheim in the north of the south island, they had there also quit a lot of peas. But what do I hate those peas with mint-flavour... bahbah :-)

A rather sparse redbeet seed crop in the foreground, with a Briggs rotorainer irrigator (on a sweet corn crop) in the distance.

Most of the irrigators that I saw working were these rotary booms or fixed linear booms, along with centre pivots & linear move machines.

Superb irrigated winter wheat crop (under irrigation these sort of crops constantly yield 12-13 tonnes per hectare!)

Another one of this wheat crop. Coming from a place where 2.5 - 3 tons / acre is a good crop, these crops are just superb!

A marrowfat pea crop approaching harvest. Crops like this are either sprayed with Reglone & direct harvested or windrowed then harvested when they are dry.
