Speaker 8 at TEDxDubbo: FACETS
“Terra Carbonicum Maxima – Soil Carbon Sequestration in Broad-acre Farming”
Guy founded GAIA Consultancy in 2006 as a structure to introduce biological farming principles into broad-acre farming throughout the NSW grain belt and beyond. The primary focus of the business centres on improving soil carbon as a base line for soil fertility and crop resilience in unpredicable climatic conditions.
Guy has dedicated much time and resources towards educational seminars and articles aimed at helping growers to better understand plant nutrition and the role soil fertility, soil biology and soil carbon in creating more resilient, regenerative and economical farming systems.
Guy now employs two agronomists, based in Young and Dubbo, and office staff based in Forbes, to manage crop fertility requirements of growers in an area ranging from the Warrumbungles to the Victorian Border.
GAIA consultaqncy is currently involved in a 5 year CMA soil carbon, soil biology trail and the development of a subsequent methodolgy for storing soil carbon through management of crops and soil biological systems.
