Farm trials show next-gen compost benefits for vegie growers | AgInnovators

The Greater Sydney LLS Demonstration Farm, on the Richmond campus of University of Western Sydney, showcases innovation and best practice in horticulture, irrigation and mixed farming.

A recent focus of the farm, which is managed by Greater Sydney Local Land Services (LLS), has been to demonstrate the value of recycled organic compost in vegetable production by comparing different compost soil treatments with conventional farmer practices.

These compost trials have been overseen by Peter Conasch, a Senior Land Services Officer with Greater Sydney LLS, who draws on 20 years of agronomic experience.

The trials formed part of a larger project with NSW Farmers and University of Technology Sydney’s Institute for Sustainable Futures (ISF) that explored the demand potential for recycled organics compost in NSW’s commercial vegetable cropping sector.
