Soil health is the focus of a community field day at two farms in the Tully region next weekend (SAT 18 SEPT).
Bilyana pineapple, cane, watermelon and pumpkin producers Michael and Peter Ottone will be sharing their experiences growing pepita pumpkins and pineapples, and giving an introduction to brewing and applying bio-fertilisers.
Farmers are encouraged to bring soil samples and see exactly what’s in their soil – from nematodes to fungi and bacteria. Tableland bio-dynamic farmer and Soil Food Web lab technician Lisa Price will be putting soils under the microscope and sharing what it means for soil health.
Kennedy grazier Peter Cheisa will host the afternoon session and take everyone through the changes he has made to grazing management practices to improve his land and soil health.
The free event is on Saturday 18 September from 9am to 3pm. It has been coordinated by new farmer soil health group Lower Wet Tropics Soilcare and by Terrain NRM, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
Lunch is provided and all farmers and others who are interested in soil health are welcome.
For more information and to RSVP, contact Terrain’s Wet Tropics Regional Agricultural Landcare Facilitator Evizel Seymour on 0429 091 440 or via email at email@example.com
