Poor water penetration when water is running off like a river is often the result of farming the top 2 inches only. Dig a hole to find if you have an issue. What we do is use a Yeoman’s plough to aerate the soil. If you’d like to see more of Gary, order your own 2 DVD set “BFA Roadshow 2011” click here.

Here’s Hugo Disler of Farming Secrets on site with Tony Evans asking Tony more about the way Camperdown Compost works and of the results that they are seeing. Tony told Hugo that he has observed one dairy paddock that had used compost for three years and had 87 percent mycorrhizal fungi colonisation on the roots of the pasture. Whereas the one next door, without compost use, had only 9 percent mycorrhizal fungi. This is phenomenal! He says that replacing fertiliser with compost is generally gradual, with many farmers still choosing to use liquid nitrogen as well as the compost, to give pastures a boost.

Tony Evans, Camperdown Compost is with Dr. Elaine Ingham to visit Graham Clay. Graham joined an onfarm thermal composting programme in 2010. Graham’s costs have halved in the 1st year. This will keep happening. His lucerne is visibly greener, better regrowth due to improved root systems and soil structure.
To watch the whole story when Dr Elaine Ingham visits 3 more dairy farmers on the programme there is a DVD “Dairy Farmers Discover The Unexpected Profits & Extra Benefits From Composting Dairy Effluent” This DVD is available immediately at: Farming Secrets Store It is an excellent overview of the composting programme and the problems and savings the farmers have made.
