NSW Grassland Society Conference
BioAg Area Managers Peter Emerson and Paul Medlock recently attended the 2021 Grassland Society of NSW Virtual Conference. This was the first time the conference has been held online and the organisers did a great job reformatting the conference with short notice, to suit the current COVID situation in NSW.
There was a strong focus throughout the conference on soil nutrition, soil health and soil carbon. Increasing the soil’s fertility is one of the key principles of BioAg programs and products. Each BioAg program is focused on enhancing soils and promoting healthier, better yielding pastures, and is the starting point for increasing soil carbon levels.
The issues you face on farm – how to maintain soil nutrition levels, how to manage acidity – are the sorts of issues the BioAg team are keen to discuss with you.
