Regenerative Ag - building soil quality

13 Dec 2019



How does farm management influence soil physical, chemical and biological properties? Regenerative farmer Simon Osborne joins Plant & Food Research's Trish Fraser to discuss management on his cropping farm in Canterbury. Soil quality is of paramount importance on Simon's farm, which has been run as a no-till system for around 40 years. All crop residues are retained, and weeds, pests and diseases are managed through integrated systems which include cover crops, crop rotations, biological products, and agrichemicals when required. It's a system that suits this cropping farm, and could provide lessons for others.
