Fri, 05/11/2010

The No Till Alliance are running an Autumn Workshop - An introduction to Biological Farming: Linking  Soil Biology to Plant Nutrition for Optimum Crop Production (at welly level!)

This one day course with Joel Williams will be a thorough introduction to what is going on in the soil and what impacts it has. The course is designed with No Till farming in mind but please don't feel you have to be a rabid No Till enthusiast to fit into the course!

Joel Williams graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Agricultural Science specialising in crop and soil sciences. He worked for 5 years as a consultant on conventional and organic farms improving biological farming practices in Australia. He has a keen interest in managing soil microbial balance and plant and soil nutrition to optimize crop production. Joel spent the last 3 years working at Laverstoke Park in Hampshire promoting the soil foodweb laboratory services and investigating the application of compost tea technology under UK conditions. He has a passion for educating growers on sustainable farming practices and has traveled throughout Australia, South Africa, US and Europe speaking at various conferences and seminars.
