Brent’s long term goal is to reduce inputs and increase profit through unlocking unavailable soil nutrients, building soil water holding capacity and soil function.
Listen to internationally renowned soil biologist Dr. Jill Clapperton explain the importance of species diversity in the both the soil and above ground, and the connectivity of plants, soil biology, soil health and food quality.
