Casino course to dish dirt on soils

LAND managers in the Richmond Valley looking to improve the health and productivity of their soil are invited to take part in a new project in Casino today.

 

The North Coast Local Land Services will launch the Understanding Our Soils project at 1pm today.

 

Delivered by Judi Earl and Lewis Kahn from Agricul-tural and Information Monitoring Service (AIMS), the project aims to help land managers better understand their soil and provide options for improving soil health and productivity.

 

"AIMS' main area of interest is working with land managers to enhance the condition and productivity of their land through better understanding ecosystem function and more effective utilisation of available resources," Dr Earl said.

The project will provide discounted soil tests and interpretation of results, understanding of the importance of soil biology and how to improve it, management options to improve soil structure and methods to monitor soil health and productivity.

 

For those unable to attend the course in Casino today it will also be offered in Alstonville on Wednesday, February 10.

For more information, phone Dr Earl on 0409151969 or email judi@aimsag.com.au.
