Catchment Sensitive Farming (CSF) workshop presentations


Summaries of the presentations given at the CSF workshops around the country by Innovation for Agriculture (IfA) from late 2016 to March 2017 are part of our archives. They are divided into four subject areas and are an excellent read, providing simple but informative information in a concise manner built into the illustrative slides. In just 15 minutes one can have a good appreciation of the subject matter across all the topic areas. They are available from the links under the following subject headings and in the order in which they should be read.

1. Understanding Soil Health

2. Soil Biology

3. Building Soil Health

4. Measuring Soil Health
