Mount Taranaki

The lonely mountain on the north island. Although it is very suitable, it was not used as the lonely mountain in filming of the hobbit.

Here we see my boss steve and a farmer discussing the latest in agricultural research. Quite a lot of the farmers have actually studied to quite a degree, so at this point it was not surprising to get questions about the pH of soil and the Rhizobia strains used on the plants. The reason why I put this picture on is that this was my last sample site and I quite liked the view in the back. Now I got all my samples, so it is time to get back to the lab and find out if my spots were good choices or just good choices for the scenery.
