A series of workshops focusing on soil biology for broad-acre and horticulture businesses will tour WA in February, led by prominent Australian pasture ecologist Dr Christine Jones.

The tour, supported by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, will see Dr Jones deliver workshops that will examine soil health and optimisation strategies as well as carbon farming and recent advances in soil science.

“Dr Jones is a respected scientist, who has an impressive track record as a soil ecologist and microbiologist,” DPIRD climate resilience taskforce lead Kerrine Blenkinsop said.

“The workshops have been tailored to address local landscapes, ranging from building profit, profitability and natural capital, to resilience through diversity, healthy farming pathways and regenerative farming for perennial horticulture.”

The tour will arrive in Torbay on February 10 and deliver a workshop focusing on profit, productivity and nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium levels on the South Coast.
