Crop and Stock Health

Farming is the process of converting sunlight to other forms of energy that people are able to either consume or benefit from in some other way. The majority of our farming operations are soil-based. Soils are nothing without microbial activity.
We are only as healthy as the food we eat and a truly healthy soil provides food that results in robust good health.


Case Study

Ongoing Monitoring

A range of farming operations has been monitored over a number of years. Information is available on dairy pasture production, beef fattening, commercial tomato cropping, kiwifruit, maize and viticulture.
