Brian Moorhead, staff member in our Hamilton office, was recently awarded the prestigious NZ Society of Soil Science L.C. Blakemore Award. This award is presented only once every two years and recognises outstanding achievement and performance in soil science technical support. Dave Houlbrooke, immediate past-president of the NZ Soil Science Society, presented Brian the award.
Brian Moorhead joined Lincoln Agritech in 2000 and has made tremendous contributions to various projects on optimising agricultural/horticultural land use and minimising negative environmental effects. He has provided outstanding technical support and managed large scale operations for numerous projects on the hydrology and nutrient dynamics in the soil – vadose zone – groundwater continuum. Soil coring, sampling, stream flow gauging, streambed sampling, groundwater and stream sampling and GPS applications are just a few of Brian’s many invaluable contributions to our field site investigations.
