Virginia discusses compost at Soils For Life podcast
There are millions of hectares of degraded soils in Australia’s agricultural landscapes. And there are a billion reasons why compost offers a solution to this problem, teeming with micro-organisms and organic matter that can help regenerate soils. But not all composts are the same and there is still a lot that we’re learning about this carbon rich resource.
Virginia along with a number of guests discuss how governments, farmers and industry can work together to return organic matter to the soil and close the loop from paddock to paddock.
