In the interim to our face to face conference, the SANTFA team have pulled together three great minds to discuss the merits of Nitrogen in your system .

Dr James Hunt: ” Do we need to build a N bank? Positive nitrogen balance is needed to maintain soil carbon.”

Peter Treloar: “Nitrogen response in Long term No Till. Does the rate of N application within a long term no till system have impact on yield?”

Professor Roger Armstrong: “Are strategies based on high rates of fertiliser N the most effective strategy to meet long-term crop demand?”

This discussion will be facilitated by our own Greg Butler.

This will be a $FREE event webinar and more details including zoom link are to come. Lock this date in your diary! And watch this space.
