A Healthy Soils; Soil Health and Your Wealth One-Day Seminar
is being held in Rockhampton on 21 May 2019

 

Want to know more about Soil Health and Your Wealth

One-Day Seminar
Your soil is your greatest asset. It is the essence of your productive potential and profitability. Soil health is also key to stress-free farming. The common catch cry is, “our soils aren’t what they used to be”.

In this fascinating half-day seminar, internationally acclaimed soil specialist, Graeme Sait, will help you reclaim resilience and profitability on the farm.

Seminar 1 – The State of Play – Microbes, Minerals and Humus
Introduction to Nutrition Farming®, including details of an emerging global
biological revolution, the drivers for this change, core concepts in Nutrition
Farming®, and the basics of balancing microbes, minerals and humus.
Discover why Nutrition Farming® is the shape of the future.

Seminar 2 – Harnessing Humus
In this presentation we will consider the role of agriculture in climate change,
the urgency of a viable game-plan to address global warming and we will
suggest ten humus building hints. We will also consider the pros and cons
of glyphosate – the world’s largest selling farm chemical.

Seminar 3 – Mineral Interactions & Disease (Part 1)
This presentation involves the essence of Nutrition Farming®, i.e., addressing
the root cause rather than treating symptoms. Disease is never an accident
and very commonly there is a link between too much, too little, or the wrong
form of key minerals including NPK and trace minerals.

Seminar 4 – Managing Microbes – Understanding The Most Productive Players
Discover the multiple benefits of nurturing your hidden workforce, and how
this can reduce your chemical bill. In this presentation, we offer a detailed
analysis of the specific benefits associated with three key organisms.
Mycorrhizal fungi, Bacillus blends, and Trichoderma together comprise
powerhouse tools to improve production and profitability.

Seminar 5 – Mineral Interactions & Disease (Part 2)
In this presentation, we continue our comprehensive look at specific
minerals and their link to disease. Here there is a focus upon nitrogen
mismanagement as a primary player. We will also look at identifying
nutrient deficiencies and the role of plant sugars in determining pest
pressure.

Seminar 6 – The Magic and Myth of Cover Cropping
Cover cropping has become a phenomenon in regenerative agriculture.
Discover several reasons to cover crop, six core strategies for success and
learn how to avoid mistakes.

Seminar 7 – Foliar Fertilising – The Power of Direct Injection
At one point, foliar nutrition was largely practiced by those involved in
intensive horticulture. This application technique is now emerging as a
powerful strategy in all forms of agriculture. Understand the rationale for
this change and discover all the tips and strategies to ensure maximum
foliar success and productivity.
