``Securo experienced drought during establishment but came through fine and has stood well. The root structure is impressive and it copes far better with drought than other crops in the rotation. It’s also good for soil because the root structure helps to increase organic matter, something as farmers we’re all working hard to increase in our soils, and I’m hoping the long roots help to improve soil structure.``
