Spend the day learning the importance of soil health in cropping and how valuable a healthy population of microbes is to your crop. Getting this to happen can be a challenge. Learn what types of microbes you need and how to build up their numbers and the importance of crop rotations as practical soil microbiologist Dr Ash Martin from Microbe Labs talks you through it in the field. The day includes practical advice from local farmers, soil pit talk and viewing samples under the microscope.
