About this Event

Come and join us for a practical Visual Soil Assessment workshop!

Visual soil assessment (VSA) is a useful tool in measuring key physical properties of the soil as well as some biological and chemical properties.

By completing a VSA we are able to get an indication of the soils structure, texture, porosity, depth of topsoil, rooting depth and presence of earthworms among other indicators which can allow us to determine the overall health of the soil. Taking the health of the soil on your farm into consideration will allow you to make decisions about sustainable land management practices.

This workshop is suitable for your whole farming team, so make sure you bring them along to understand the structure of soil.

This session is presented by Josh Verhoek from Ballance Agri-Nutrients.

A BBQ lunch will be provided by Farm Source Longburn.
