‘Starting with the minerals’ Field Day

Join us in Lake King, WA to hear from grain grower Rob Hetherington on how he has improved his farm's plant and soil health. You'll learn about his approach to monitoring, correcting mineral imbalances and restoring soil function, multispecies and companion cropping, eliminating fungicides and insecticides, and his biological fertility program.

Biological agronomist Ken Bailey will also be on board to share his insights on how mineral imbalances are the ‘cause behind the cause’, the role of soil aggregation in nitrogen fixation, the importance of molybdenum, and how nitrogen fixation can be a precursor to carbon fixation.

We will be getting together at the Hetherington’s farm for a morning of discussions in the shed, and an afternoon session in the paddock. Lunch and morning tea will be provided.

This event is supported by Soils For Life in partnership with RegenWA, through funding from the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund.
