What's important

COACHES – Think like a farmer

  1. Don’t shout at the crops
  2. Don’t blame the crop for not growing fast enough
  3. Don’t uproot crops before they’ve had a chance to grow
  4. Choose the best plants for the soil
  5. Irrigate, fertilise and remove weeds

Remember you will have good seasons and bad seasons – you can’t control the weather only be prepared for it
