New Zealand is not too far from America and it is easy to get a hold of equipment in the US. David got a piece of equipment from Nebraska that he uses today which is a 2011 Case IH 8230. He utilizes this combine because he believes it is gentle on the seed and is the best fit for his operation. Another piece of equipment that he utilizes is a John Deer 8220.

New Zealand farmers are driven to be more efficient because the government mandates it. They have pushed the farmers to minimize pollution and maximize production. Both operations have transitioned into some of the most advanced technologies to manage their inputs. This includes transitioning from flood dike to center pivot irrigation.
