Managing nitrogen and carbon to maximise farm performance
We had the pleasure of having Graham Shepherd speak at our farmers’ days in the Tsitsikamma (EC) and Nottingham Road (KZN) in April. Graham is a soil health and regenerative agriculture expert from New Zealand.
We used Graham’s extensive knowledge and experience, and his visual soil health assessment as the foundational theme for the day: Sustainability – Economics and soil power.We explored the topics of soil health and water management, farm nutrient flow, greenhouse gas emissions, and carbon sequestration.
Graham was extremely generous with his time and insight. Both in helping formulate plans to help farmers and in encouraging the Trace and Save research team to explore pertinent topics which will improve the veracity of our sustainability indicators
