The Burnett Mary Regional Group invites you to attend our ‘Living and Productive Soils Symposium and Bus Tour’ for all growers, producers and agriculturalists across all industries in the wider Bundaberg region.
This full-day event will host expert presenters such as Mark Sugars (Dept. of Resources), Jack Milbank (AgPro Technology), John Moor (Growmoor Biological) and Nadia Campbell (Goondicum Pastoral Co.) The field component will be guided by industry experts and practitioners to demonstrate on-ground implementation options and management approaches.
Keynote speakers on the day will deliver content covering the essentials of how to maintain biological function and health of soil, for the benefit of both environmental outcomes, and producer profitability. Topics covered will include; soil function and geology, soil biology, effects of tillage, multispecies cover cropping, ecological management for profitability and practical tips on maintaining soil health.
The bus tour will include a visit to Green Solutions Compost facility, to learn about how their compost is made and the benefits that it can provide to soil. The second destination will be to Chapman Ag properties, to see first-hand some regenerative agriculture practices that are being implemented in the sugar industry.
