The Richmond demonstration site in southern Tasmania was hosted by Harvest Farms from 2018 to 2021.
A trial was established to examine the costs and benefits of organic soil amendments on babyleaf crop yield and quality.
The team at Harvest Farms was already using reduced tillage, controlled traffic and cover cropping and wanted to examine soil amendments to help maintain or build soil organic matter. This was expected to have a positive effect on overall soil and crop health.
You can find out more in this summary report on the key findings from the demonstration site trial.
Compliance with food safety requirements was confirmed with all suppliers prior to applying the amendments.
Thank you to Harvest Farms for supporting this site.
