Mainstreaming BIOCHAR -Save the Date October 21

Posted on: 2 September 2019

Would you like to come along and hear first hand about the biochar trail work that is taking place locally?

If the answer is yes then pencil October 21 into your dairy. Guest from far and abroad will be traveling to Victoria in October to participate in a Study Tour and Conference on Mainstreaming Biochar.

Participants in the Study Tour will be travelling to Portland to take part in a regional tour. The tour includes a drop in session at two local Portland farms. One of these Farms is involved in a Red Wheat Trail that is using biochar at different application rates and the other is hosting a biochar sheep feeding trail and dung beetle diversity and activity study.

The day will deliver access to information about the trial work including recent results from both trails. If you are interested in attending the session and or have an interest in biochar and its application on your farm please contact Kristy Brewer for more information.
