Why you need healthier soil
As NSW settles into autumn, temperatures in the upcoming summers are expected to remain scorching with heat waves predicted for the coming months. The normally mild climate will be replaced by sweltering conditions due to an increase in hot weather activity according to government forecasts. The NSW government has even warned the public that there will be an “increase in carbon dioxide from greenhouse gas emissions [which] may affect the growth and yield of crops”. Despite this year having generally a bit more rainfall than usual, we have experienced heavy hits of heat with over the past decade. Thankfully, farmers are learning to adapt for the dryer weather conditions with conservation tillage and soil amelioration. These are generally effective practices, however monitoring your soil through IoT can save you more time and money.
