Farmanco Facts – October 2020
Mark Lawrence, Agronomist based in Kojonup wrote the Editorial for Farmanco Facts, October.
As well as introducing the articles for this month, Mark recommends the use of the St John First Responder App.
He recently experienced a scenario while mountain bike riding where he needed to contact emergency services, but it was difficult to give accurate road references due to his location. He learned that if you call through the St John First Responder App, it references the exact location of the incident to emergency services, making it much easier for assistance to come to you. Very handy for many of our clients, living in remote areas.
