Improving Soil Health - An Agronomy View

Screen Shot 09-11-18 at 12.03 PM.JPG

Presented by Wayne Challis, Senior Agronomist from HiTech Ag Solutions, this workshop aims to give you an insight into the role of soil biology on soil and plant health - including nutrient status. Wayne will explore ways to manipulate soil biology for better yields, environmental quality, and producer economic viability. 

Farmer John Dunnet, will share his experience of the past decade, the highs and the lows, in working to improve his soil's health and productivity.

Your takeaway from this workshop will be an introductory understanding of:

  • soil biology

  • the relationship between soil biology & plant nutrient supply

  • interpreting soil test results (chemical) in relation to soil biology

  • what soil amendments can promote biological activity

Networking BBQ


At the end of the presentation we'll relax, & throw some snaggers on the barbie. It will be a great chance to keep talking about this key topic, network with Wayne & John, and other local landholders who have experiences to share.
