Farmers and gardeners are rediscovering the power of nature and soil biology as the most effective engine feeding their plants to high nutrient quality and resilience.
Healthy soils help to wean farmers and gardeners off fossil fuel based fertiliser, pesticides and herbicides while maintaining productivity.
Farmers and gardeners planning for peak oil and interested in improving yields, product quality and garden resilience are now focusing on improving their soil biology for soil health.
Former CSIRO scientist Dr Maarten Stapper of BioLogic AgFood, is a speaker at the University of Queensland. Maarten will speak first hand of his 30 years research
experience and advising farmers on achieving soil health for profitable farming.
