I am pleased to announce that the winner of the 2017 Members Photograph Competition is Lewis Rose.
Lewis received almost 60% of the vote, with 170 members voting in total, for his photograph taken at a recent NERC-funded Tropical Soils Workshop in Minas Gerais, Brazil. It shows a demonstration of new techniques a local farmer is experimenting with in association with local scientists. By allowing organic matter to build in the soil, and reducing tillage, Claudio has seen myriad benefits and become a true role model!
The photograph will be used on the front cover of the June 2017 edition of the Auger which will be sent to all members next month.
