Last week I photographed Roy Eykamp, a very well-known identity on the Liverpool Plains.  His whole life has been the pursuit of perfection in farm machinery and growing the best possible crop. He, for thirty years, has had the monopoly on Kikuyu grass seed. He found how and where it grew best and then invented the machine to harvest the seed.

Now 95 years old, he wrote his first book at the age of 92 and titled it "Oh, what have I done?"
