We’re very happy to have the sponsorship of several great companies for our 2020 Conference ‘The Regenerative Soil Solution’. All the companies have been so supportive of our message, and we look forward to having them with us at Lincoln University in March.
Soil Foodweb has been a valued supporter of the ODPG for a while now as a Commercial Member. As soil rehabilitation specialists with New Zealand’s foremost soil testing lab, they are a valuable addition to our Soil Solution conference.
Understanding how the microbes effect soil health requires a detailed knowledge on what organisms exist in the soil, how many of them are active, how efficient the nutrient cycling capability is and if the balances are correct for the crop grown.
At SFI NZ, the team assesses soil, compost, compost tea, leaf colonisation, vermicast and various other biological products for fungi, bacteria, protozoa, and mycorrhizal fungi. Armed with this information you are then able to confidently decide on the right management tools plus weigh up how effective they are over ensuing years. Working with many input suppliers and consultants we are able to adapt the farmers existing nutrient program to facilitate a smooth transition from ‘mineral-only’ replacement to biological production.
By maintaining an annual monitoring program, the transformation is able to progress at the same rate as the farmers understanding and confidence.
