Short talks from guest speakers included:

  • Lessons from broadacre cropping soils

  • Indicators of soil health used in sub-tropical vegetables

  • Physical, chemical and biological indicators of soil health

  • The success of grower soil training days - UTE GUIDE

Many soil related issues were raised in the workshop discussion.
