How to farm using biology and natural capital rather than chemistry
Farming is at a crossroads and critical to a new path will be utilising natural capital and our soil biology to reduce inorganic inputs and create better margins.
This session will explore the transition from conventional to regenerative agriculture, what the impacts have been from fertilisers and chemicals not only for our soils but also the nutritional value of our food. We will cover:
- How by introducing biology into our soils can reverse this damage,improve the nutritional density of our food and how this can be achieved at a practical farming level by activating
- Nature’s own soil food web
