Declan will dig into the science behind growing soil organic carbon, how to implement regenerative management techniques, and how to monitor and measure your success. Improving soil health and building soil carbon can improve the productivity of your soils, and you can earn carbon credits for the carbon you produce.
Declan is a professional soil scientist with over 30 years’ experience in agricultural and horticultural soil management and has extensive experience in regenerative agriculture in NSW, Victoria and Tasmania.
The seven-part webinar series will support farmers participating in or interested in a soil carbon project. The series will cover best practice conventional and regenerative soil management techniques to suit your soils, climate and enterprise.
Sessions will be interactive to answer all your questions. The series will support all farmers to better understand their soils, however there will be a focus on grazing systems in moderate to high rainfall zones.
The series is hosted by AgriProve, a soil carbon project developer that facilitates landholder participation in the Emissions Reduction Fund, enabling farmers to earn an income from carbon abatement activities.
