The BioAg field day and soil health workshop is an opportunity to get up close to the functional workings of the soil upon which all farming enterprises – big or small depend on. A large area of land throughout New Zealand is occupied by so called lifestylers. These smaller blocks can be very productive and contribute to local communities providing a healthy local environment while also doing their bit for carbon sequestration.
Soil health and biological function sets the basis for nutrition and health throughout the food chain, influences crop and animal yields as well as economic and environmental performance. While the workshop is being targeted to small block holders the information being shared is applicable to all farming.
