Having a plan is the key management tool to maximising profit and reducing stress in a dry summer. When it will rain is not easily predicted but a plan provides the framework to what decisions need to be made and when.
A different plan will be required for an early summer dry than a late summer dry. A plan is essential to make sure that indecision or rash decisions are not made. The plan needs to identify and document the key decisions required which will include targets and trigger points (dates).
