His interest in regenerative agriculture was sparked by reading Graeme Sait’s book called “Nutrition Rules” and he has since been experimenting with methods of soil improvement and nutrient balance to help improve farm performance.
Artificial nitrogen has transformed agricultural production arguably like no other input, yet excess quantities of this highly reactive nutrient also cause a host of negative environmental impacts. With typical NUEs of ~50% the norm, there is scope to improve efficiencies and reduce dependency on bagged N. This session will share a selection of on-farm strategies […]
