Jonathan Holmes

Albrecht Soil Scientist, and Agroecologist

Jonathan Holmes of Lordington Park Agronomy is an independent agronomist and university lecturer in agriculture, as well as teaching BASIS & FACTS.

A leading specialist in equine, deer and agricultural grassland management, Jonathan utilises the Albrecht model of soil balancing to develop sward management plans that are specific to both the environment and the well-being of animals. His interests focus on establishing sustainable and profitable farming environments for arable and grassland farmers that also contribute to the reduction of atmospheric CO2. Current projects involve assessing the environmental and financial benefits of root colonisation with Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi.

When he’s not knee-deep in soil, Jonathan can be found hiking with his dogs or judging gun-dog trails.

Carbon Sinks – Get planting and generate productive profitable soils

Understand how a plant interacts with soil and increase your gross margin while saving the planet! Albrecht soil science quantifies your soil’s potential for productivity. Use that information to increase plant health while reducing fertiliser and fungicide costs. Productive soils will generate a healthy plant that has the capacity to sequester carbon – extract atmospheric […]
