About the workshop

The Healthy Soils workshop is an opportunity for local farmers to better understand key drivers of soil health, participate in soil sampling and interpretation of their own soil test results, and receive specialist advice to help them match nutrient inputs to crop and soil requirements.
Main presenter David Hall is an independent agricultural consultant with extensive experience in plant nutrition and soil fertility. David has worked with farmers across cropping, horticulture, fodder, and pasture production enterprises.
Local Farmcraft agronomist Donald McMurrick will also provide an overview of local soil heath issues and programs.

Topics will include:

– How to keep your soils productive
– Matching your inputs to crop needs
– Addressing local soil health issues 

Who should attend?

Farmers who are interested in improving and maintaining soil health for sustainable and profitable crop production. 


This workshop is supported by Healthy Land and Water through funding from the Australian Government's National Landcare Program.
