Welcome to the LawrieCo 6 Step Soil Carbon Regeneration Online Training!
Acknowledgment for this training is made to many innovative clients, scientists, and researchers, who have supported the LawrieCo team, and enabled paddock examples of profitability in rebuilding degraded soils.
This training package aims to teach the essentials of the LawrieCo 6 Step Soil Carbon Regeneration method, which is based on 30 years’ worth of farmer examples, principals, scientific research, field trials, and native soil observations, that have contributed to regenerating Australian agricultural landscapes.
The primary focus of the LawrieCo method is to profitably and progressively improve soil health and productivity. Methods include increasing nutrient efficiency, growing soil carbon, supporting the soil microbiome, and developing mineral function, levels, and balance.
This training course introduces the science utilized to obtain a fundamental understanding of soil function, and all from a farmers perspective. The science includes what nature does well, and how farmers can mimic these soil conditions and management practices within commercial agricultural systems.
With a regenerative and biological focus, we are able to implement new management practices which transform grazing, cropping, and horticultural systems into highly productive and profitable enterprises, which benefit both operator and environment. Farmers successful with Regen Ag methods begin by asking questions when management choices are made – Does nature approve? Will my management increase soil health as well as increase yield?
Over the course of 8 modules, you will discover everything you need to implement change within your enterprise, whether it be through small incremental changes, or a complete reworking of farm management practices. The following modules are centered around the 6 pillars of the LawrieCo 6 Step method:
- Microbial Balance
- Mineral Balance
- Carbon Balance
- Biological Inoculants and Stimulants
- Biological Nutrition Management
- Biological Residue Management
Following the 6 in-depth modules which form the majority of the course content, the following 2 modules explain and unpack how to implement the changes required in your agricultural system, and outline the steps in registering a carbon project with LawrieCo, to capitalise on the carbon growth obtained from the implementation of new strategies and practices.
- My Carbon Journey
- Changing Tactics
Once you have completed the training package, you will be issued with a certificate for all of your hard work.
