Chris O’Kane – East Feluga Cane Farmer

17 NOVEMBER 2020

Chris O’Kane is a third-generation cane farmer and looking after the land is in his blood. His late father Bernie was a true innovator and “wasn’t afraid to try new things.”

He’s a forward thinker too – “the farming techniques we’re doing now will leave the farm in a better condition for our children.”

Following in their father’s footsteps, Chris and his brother Michael have designed equipment to improve efficiency and production and brew their own microbes on site.

Hear about their fallow trials, what’s in their special fallow mix and why they’re putting soil health at the forefront of their farming practices as part of the Wet Tropics Major Integrated Project.
