Soil Health

John Milburn
06:25 minutes    Victorian vegetable growers reflect on soil-care practices of the past including the use of crop rotations, animal manures, composts and cover crops.

Advances in mechanised equipment after WWII made it possible to quickly work in crop trash and enabled multiple cropping of the same piece of land.

Intensification of production raised crop yeilds dramatically but also led to difficulties with soil workability & drainage and more frequent problems with soil-borne pests and diseases such as nematodes, fusarium and club root.

20 years on, soil health has become widely recognised as a key indicator of sustainable farming systems and is the subject of a major soil health program funded through the National Vegetable R&D .

Interviews with Jack Walker, Luis Gazzola, John Milburn, Rob Allen, Angelo Taranto, Keith Allen, Peter Schreurs and Les Giroud.
