The Problem: Concerns about declining profitability, poor soil structure, dry land salinity, soil acidification and increasing numbers of herbicide resistance weeds prompted Colin Seis to look at changing his farming practices.
What Did Colin Do?: Colin developed a system which is now called Pasture cropping. With his friend Daryl Cluff, they initiated over 15 years ago a technique of sewing crops into living perennial pastures and having these crops grow symbiotically with existing pastures.
The Results: By maintaining year round ground cover. Colin has reduced wind and water erosion, improved soil structure. reduced weed numbers, increased nutrient availability and increased levels of soil organic carbon.
As you watch and listen to this DVD many benefits will become apparent as Colin shares how he has been perfecting his technique over the years. From a farm economic point of view the potential for good profit is excellent because the costs of growing crops in this manner is a fraction of conventional cropping.
