Compost calculator: knowing the value of organic amendments in your vegetable nutrition program in Victoria

The addition of organic soil amendments is becoming increasingly popular in vegetable production. Organic amendments provide a range of benefits to farming systems from both a production and economic perspective. 

A current project being delivered by Queensland University of Technology in collaboration with La Trobe University is seeking to provide growers and  industry service providers with an effective decision support tool to integrate organic amendments into farm nutrient budgets. 

Watch this informative webinar and hear from the research team on the project’s importance and recent developments:

  • Associate Professor David Rowlings, Queensland University of Technology - National overview of the project and direction moving forward
  • Professor Ian Porter, La Trobe University - Overview of the international significance of the project and its benefit to Australian growers
  • David Riches and Dr Scott Mattner, La Trobe University – Early results of the project from the Baxter and Werribee South trial sites. 

This webinar was delivered as part of VegNET Victoria – Northern, Western and South Eastern. This project has been funded by Hort Innovation using the vegetable research and development levy and funds from the Australian Government.
