I want to generate some income from farming crops. What are the basics I need to know?

If you wish to grow crops on your lifestyle block, you'll need at least a basic knowledge of soil composition, pest control, and water irrigation.  Water supply and quality is particularly important if you'll be away from your property regularly.

Some relatively profitable crops you can grow include berries, asparagus, leafy greens, garlic and onions. These are quick to grow and produce plentiful outputs.

Talk to your local garden centre for crop growing advice, or visit the A&P Field Days to talk with experts who have first-hand experience of lifestyle farming.
