Soil Water Solutions


Cliff Hignett has trained TAFE students in land mangement, university graduates in soil physics, and helped communicate the latest developments in soil science to farmers across Australia. He was accredited as a trainer with the Kadina TAFE and the ‘Farm Ready’ program - more substantial workshops may attract govt. subsidy. FARMBIZ questionaires showed farmers rated his work extremely highly, with as many as 80% of farmers saying they learned something new that they would apply on their properties.

One of the more fun jobs is to introduce primary school students to the pleasures of measuring soil texture This time at a Mt Compass Field Day
