Get to know the health of your soil through simple DIY tests in this practical field day led by Soil Scientist Philip Mulvey. We will discuss the importance of mending and maintaining the small water cycle and how to build and track carbon on your farm.
Bring along with you a sample (about 250g) of your best and your worst topsoil and a 30cm deep sample. Bring 4 empty jars to do your testing with. 4 samples in total to participate in the DIY testing.
Discussion topics of the event include:
- What is a healthy water cycle, actions that contribute to loss of water cycle and maintaining a healthy water cycle
- Why carbon in soil requires water cycling, how carbon in soil builds drought resilience and measuring carbon in soil as a crop
- DIY soil assessment in practice using Ryzo’s Soil Properties Observation Test
