Full Inversion Tillage Field Day 26th February, Massey No.4 Dairy Unit

The soil carbon research team at Massey University, Plant & Food Research and Manaaki Whenua (Landcare Research) invite you to a field day for farmers and Rural Professionals in the region who are interested in reducing on-farm greenhouse gas emissions. 

 

When:   Tuesday 26th February, 11:00am - 1:30pm

Venue:  Massey No.4 Dairy Farm, 273 Tennant Drive, Palmerston North

 

The Aims of this Field day:

  • Share exciting pasture renewal science using full inversion tillage that that can: (i) build more soil organic matter and reduce atmospheric CO2 concentrations (ii) reduce a dairy or sheep and beef farm’s net greenhouse gas emission, whilst maintaining production. (iii) produce greater summer and winter crop yields and reduce the need to import supplement.
  • See how the research is conducted, view a plough set up for full inversion tillage.
  • Network and exchange ideas on how to focus the research on outcomes that farmers need and how to become informed and engaged in discussing NZ climate change policy.

 

Brief introduction on arrival for a 11am sharp start. Bring your own lunch; water tea and coffee will be provided. Field day will conclude at 1.30pm, with a ploughing demonstration, if conditions allow 

 

To receive more details please register for the field day by RSVP to Roberto Calvelo- Pereira (<R.CalveloPereira@massey.ac.nz>) with your name & company details.
