Cows Before and After

Ducks Before and After

Ducks before and two years later on Barry Brunton’s LimeMagPlus fertilised Rukuhia farm. They got no Solmin. Expensive phosphate and potash were in excess so not applied on any farms for four years.

Cultivation

Some say that chisel ploughing can’t bury maize stubble. It is being done perfectly, quicker and better by leaving a little on top. Subsequent  far better maize and pasture yields prove it. See more photos in grazinginfo.com 

 

This soil was mouldboard ploughed showing the bad results.

 

This chisel ploughed soil shows deeper and perfect mixing of subsoil and lime, and better clovers organically. See the Calcium chapter for clover roots going down 40 cm.
