Walter Jehne is an internationally recognized soil microbiologist and innovation strategist.
He has immense field and research experience in forests, grasslands, agriculture and
soils at national (CSIRO) and international (UN) level. Walter’s scientific work has
focused on soil biology, plant root ecology, mycorrhizal fungi, glomalin, soil-carbon
formation, as well as on biology’s enormous influence on hydrological cycles, weather
patterns, regional and global cooling, air quality, and cloud formation and precipitation.
He has a remarkable ability to explain complex systems in easy to understand ways.
Walter will outline a sequence of options to help understand and refine practical methods to
harness soil biology in regenerating the health, bio-fertility and viability of farming soils and
systems in SW Western Australia. Build soils for better crops and pastures. Our theme for the day’s events will be based on WHAT IS THE SOIL SPONGE, WATER SHEDDING,
CARBON SEQUESTRATION, NUTRIENT AVALAIBLITY via HEALTHY SOIL BIOLOGY
