Lance Pratt (29), Machinery Operator for A S Wilcox
After moving to A S Wilcox from the Hawkes Bay 3 years ago, Lance has expanded his skillset, having spent time managing staff and using his practical knowledge to oversee activities. Over the last season he has specialised in potato growing, specifically cultivation, planting, spray programs and harvesting which has enhanced and developed his crop husbandry skills. A Highlight for Lance was placing third in the 2013 Young Vegetable Grower competition.
