CSU Research Bulletin "Soil CRC funding awarded to CSU project"

Press/Media: Press / Media

Description

A project led by Dr Richard Culas has received funding from the Soil CRC.  The project will assess the cost effectiveness of using waste products such as manure, dairy farm waste, compost and biochar as an organic fertiliser.  While the biophysical benefits of incorporating organic wastes as fertilisers into soils are known, the financial impacts are less well understood.  In particular, the wider and combined financial impacts of using organic materials as fertiliser are poorly understood and communicated to farmers.
