Preparing for Drought
Planning for drought is a complex and difficult business. Too often, good ideas are forgotten once rain falls and business as usual resumes. This publication aims to capture strategies for future use.
Healthy soil is essential to the farming production system - as important as healthy stock and disease free crops. Compost is as old as agriculture itself and is one of Earth's processes for recycling materials. This guide covers the basics in composting, commercial composting and what compost means for your farming practises.
Compost is a common ingredient in home gardens, but less well-known in commercial agriculture. This book details the benefits of raising levels of soil health by using compost in larger-scale agricultural operations. The standards applying to compost are detailed to ensure a quality product.
