Voted #1 presenter at the 2019 Conference in Albury, John returns to the 2020 event to expand on the importance of soil carbon, the soil biome, and how to harness them in your grove to better manage tree nutrition, available water, and tree health to improve grove productivity.

He will be joined this year by Andy Gulliver, a legend in the Australian composting industry. Andy is at the cutting edge of composting technology and the emerging science that underpins it. His presentations on the soil biome at the IPDM Field Days in WA resonated profoundly with olive growers who attended, and he’s now keen to spread the word at a national level.

Andy and John will provide a dynamic series of presentations to assist delegates to understand soil biology, along with management tips to improve the soil health in their groves.
