South East Local Land Services is inviting local land managers to attend two soil health workshops that will provide a range of practical tools to measure key soil health attributes.
Senior Land Services Officer, Rebecca Bradley said Local Land Services is committed to providing land managers with access to information and assistance to continually improve their land management skills.
"Healthy soils are a key asset to primary producers as they are linked to the profitability and sustainability of farming enterprises," Ms Bradley said.
"The workshops will be presented by agricultural ecologist David Hardwick. Day one will provide participants with practical, hands-on activities to assess and monitor soil health. Day two will provide participants with the skills to interpret a soil test and identify any constraints to farm productivity.
"Combined, these two workshops will assist land managers to make informed farm management decisions, with the aim of achieving positive outcomes for soil health and condition."
The workshops will be held at Braidwood on Friday, 21 November and Friday, 5 December 2014.
The cost is $25.
