Matt and Justine McLeod have been running a trial to tackle two of the biggest issues in farming – water and money.

Experimenting with 96 plots, the trial has monitored the impact of different rates of compost in combination with worm extracts and varying fertiliser applications and different pasture species. The trial has tracked soil health, water efficiency, plant health, nutrient input and removal, yield and profitability. This workshop style field day will explain data, share trial results and invite you to explore which learnings you can take home and implement on your farm.

This event will cover:

  • The trial findings
  • How attendees can apply the findings on their own farms
  • After the trial – what is next for Justine and Matt McLeod


Get expert help to create a plan for your property to build drought resilience through soil health based on the trial findings!

This is the third and final field day. Come along and learn the outcomes of this exciting, large-scale field trial in central Queensland.

Limited spaces available!
