Marlborough Discussion Group - September

Come along to the first post-calving discussion group of 2018 to join our open discussion and learn from our guest speaker.

Renowned soils expert, Murray lane, will be our guest speaker at the event. As well as updating us on his latest work on how to establish crops using helicopters, Murray will also be presenting on these topics:

  • Looking After Your Soil - Soil is every farmer’s biggest asset.
  • Protecting Soil Dwelling Insects – did you know the mass of beneficial insects under every hectare of land is the equivalent of two cows?
  • Mechanical Cultivation – what are the negative effects on soil structure?
  • High Yield / Low Effort Crops – Growing them with little expense or effort.

We will start with the usual whipround to get a feel for how the season has started in the area.

Your lunch is sponsored by Balance, so grab a plate and have a catch up! Bring the team along as it’s sure to be an informative and enjoyable event.
