Landscape Board to set the standard of Healthy Soils in the Limestone Coast.
The Limestone Coast Landscape Board is hosting a series of webinars on healthy soils to assist landholders, primary producers, advisors and anyone wanting to improve their understanding of soils.
The five part healthy soils series which is being provided by the Limestone Coast Landscape Board will delve into topics such as soils of the Limestone Coast, what makes fertile soil, soil carbon and biology, clay and sandy soils.
Within the Limestone Coast region there are 62 different types of soil, of these up to 59% make up key soils such as sandy or clay soils. Through the understanding of soils and their constraints, landholders can make effective on farm decisions resulting in a boost to their bottom line.
“The webinars and workshop are a key step in the Limestone Coast Landscape Board supporting primary producers to increase production in balance with sustainable management of resources and our Landscape” highlighted Chair of the Limestone Coast Landscape Board, Penny Schulz.
