While it all sounds good on paper, especially cutting out chemical fertilizer use, which will also have the effect of making farmers more profitable, we must be mindful of what is happening at the moment to Peter Spencer. http://agmates.ning.com/group/peterspencerhungerstrike Kevin Rudd is in Copenh...

I recently emailed Mr Holding, the Minister for being geographically embarressed and tactically misplaced, about the supply of treated effluent and stormwater to dwellings via a 'third' pipe. He informed me that it was prohibitedly expensive to retrofit existing subdivisions. So how about as well as...

I have read here about farmers in the WA wheatbelt who leave there fields fallow between crops. What success are we having in getting those people to have a cover crop between wheatcrops? What about things like shelterbelts and agroforestry?

Dire Straits

The famous Dire Straits song says 'get your money for nothing...', Peter's books tell us that all farmers can get for nothing is Air, Sun and Rain. If you look at the post on Viv Forbes website; http://www.carbon-sense.com/ they are wanting research done on the plumes from power stations etc. Where ...

Very disturbing. But what about countries like Zimbabwe who used to be food exporters, but now can't grow enough for a 'Big Mac'? What about the Permaculture video, 'Greening the Desert'? Our world is 70% water, why should the lack of water be an impediment to agriculture? What would happen if we ha...

It beats me why our Forest Services don't plant a variety of plants. Many non-eucalypts are valuable timber trees eg Nothofagus, Toona G. robusta andArtherosperma just to name a few. While they were at it they could plant along all watercourses Salix alba var caerulea

I have just finished reading Pat Coleby's book 'Natural Farming'. I have thought of getting my soil tested, but seeing as I am on a sub quarter-acre and because I am renting, have a lot of my plants in pots, I thought the expense wasn't justified. I would be interested to hear from anybody who has f...
