Guest speakers

Dr Mark Farrell is a Principal Research Scientist with the CSIRO, based in Adelaide.

He is a biogeochemist with particular interest in the interactions between organic carbon and nitrogen in soils, and the importance of these on ecosystem function and agricultural productivity.

Mark will share his knowledge of soil organic matter decline in dryland grain farming.

He will also provide practical strategies for re-building soil carbon and nitrogen stocks.

Luise Fanning is a Horsham-based Crop Pathologist with Agriculture Victoria.

Luise has expertise in grain crop diseases in Victoria, their diagnoses and management.
