A biofertiliser is any fertiliser containing live microbes. This project trialled a biofertiliser made from materials found on site. The product is called LAMP (Local Area Microbe Preparation), and is made from leaf litter and microbe food which is then aged to become a long storing product. LAMP was trialled across 4 sites. Each site was monitored for changes in soil carbon, microbial activity and water holding capacity. The sites varied from pasture plots to vegetable gardens and orchards.
