There are also prizes for the most imaginative use of a giant pumpkin and the best dressed pumpkin lookalike. Phone (09) 407-1645 or search Facebook for Plant Zone Direct for more information. Awards seek top storage ponds DairyNZ is searching for prize dairy effluent storage ponds in the first ever New Zealand Prize Pond 2012 Awards. Farmers who are keep- ing their effluent storage ponds as low as possible are being asked to send a photo of the pond to be in to win one of two DairyNZ Prize Pond 2012 awards. DairyNZ project man- ager for effluent Dr Theresa Wilson says low ponds have storage capacity which reduces the risk of running into problems when the seasons change. We re after the two best operational dairy effluent storage ponds that meet relevant con- sents and the require- ments of your farm. And we want to see that you are keeping it low. When the wet weather starts it s good to know you ve got as much free storage as possible in your effluent storage pond.
