Our upcoming soil conference on 11 August, Talkin’ Soil Health with the theme, “Building Resilience from the Subsoil Up” will bring together farmers, researchers and industry professionals to provide practical tools and advice that farmers can use to build resilient soils.
One of the presenters, Dr Mick Rose, a Research Scientist from NSW Department of Primary Industries - Soil CRC will be introducing a Soil CRC project. The recently started project aims to disentangle and demystify some of the methods used to measure soil microbiology and function. The project will apply a range of soil biology metrics as indicators of soil health, and assess their relevance to agronomic or environmental outcomes, such as crop yield, soil structure, or nutrient availability.
Talkin’ Soil Health will be jam-packed with national and local speakers and presenters from DPIRD, UWA, CSIRO, Soil CRC and local farmers.
