Dig into understanding your farm soil with webinar series
09 Nov 2020
North Coast Local Land Services, in conjunction with David Hardwick from Soil Land Food is inviting North Coast landholders to join a series of webinars to understand better soils on their farms and in the local landscape.
“Soil is the foundation of any agricultural enterprise, and healthy soil is critical for optimal water use and plant production,” said Senior Land Services Officer, Kel Langfield.
The All About Soils webinar series is designed for farmers and land managers to improve soil health and soil management. It will cover a range of topics including; land capability, the influence of geology and landforms, soil test interpretation, soil chemical properties, moisture and water use.
‘Increasing your knowledge on soils and soil management will help deliver better outcomes for the physical, chemical and biological properties of your farm soils without losses in productivity or profitability.’ Said Kel.
In the hour-long session, participants will receive practical advice and the opportunity to ask questions in an accessible online environment.
David says, “I am excited to be involved in delivering these webinars and being able to provide practical and relevant information to farmers and land managers to build skills in soils and land management.”
The series of four webinars will run throughout the next 12 months. Participants must register separately for each of the webinars. To register for the first Webinar on November 18
If landholders have registered but cannot attend live, they can access recordings of the webinars after each event on the Local Land Service’s YouTube page.
