Woldmarsh member Peter Kirke would like to invite members to attend a seminar on Soil Health with guest speaker Graeme Sait, Co-Founder of Nutri-Tech Solutions.
If you can recognise this quote from a farmer then this groundbreaking conference will be of interest to you…
“Also, we were noticing that every year the soil was getting harder. We started seeing shifts in weed populations. We started seeing perceptible changes in pest pressure. We found it increasingly harder to maintain fertility. It was like a drug addiction. It took more and more inputs every year to get the same response.”
Banking on Biology 12th November at Cabourne Parva, Riby rd, Caistor Lincs LN7 6DR
One day Seminar by worldwide acclaimed nutrition specialist, Graeme Sait, passing on knowledge gathered in co-operation with other leading Biological soil scientists over the last 20 years, based around the workings of the Soil food Web. Building humus, organic matter, balancing minerals & encouraging good bacteria, microbes & beneficial fungi.
This knowledge links the gap between the best organic practices, whilst taking full advantage of targeted pesticides & inorganic fertilisers to obtain optimum output, whilst reducing costs of production & benefiting the environment.
This is the next step forward in sustainable agriculture & future viability.
“soil without living micro organisms is just dirt” Dr Elaine Ingham
Places are limited & available on a confirmed booking basis. Please see details in the attached brochure.
The cost includes a roast beef lunch , tea/coffee & biscuits in the morning & Tea/coffee cheese board in the afternoon, plus a vegan option if requested.
This seminar has only been made possible through the persistence of Lincolnshire farmer Peter Kirke, who’s recent research and traditional understanding of the land, that his family have worked for generations, has seen the viability of soils reduce.
Peter said “I wanted to do this seminar to gain and share the knowledge about soil biology and cover crops. I feel this understanding will help my farm become more viable by reducing inputs and improving the state of the soil. I can see the trap of the ever increasing inputs and decreasing outputs and I know that unless farmers find a different way of doing things, we only have a limited number of harvests left in the soil & finance available to continue.
We were very lucky at being able to persuade Graham to take a detour from his already organised tour and make a special visit to Lincolnshire. This is a unique opportunity and we encourage you to take advantage of it.
Graeme Sait, is a sought-after presenter and author/educator who travels extensively spreading the word.
