Local HEWA farmer participants soil testing workshop 28th February

28th of February @ Elleker General Store – Understanding your Soil Test Results Workshop. 

Local HEWA farmer participants were invited to receive their farm nutrient maps. These maps contain all of the data collected over the last year from soil sampling and tissue testing. The data showed what might be missing in their soil, but also where there may be leaching into water ways. Presenting the workshop were agronomists and representatives from DPIRD and DWER enabling the participants to:

  • Be more informed to make better fertiliser decisions by understanding the soil health of their farm.
  • Saving them money by not using more product than is needed.
  • Cutting back on excess fertilisers causing leaching into waterways
