This video was filmed at the May 14, 2014 SoilCare workshop, 'Managing Soil for Quality Crops'. The presentation is by Graham Lancaster, Manager of Environmental Analysis Lab (EAL). Graham moved from Environmental Science into Analytical Chemistry in the early 1990's, setting up EAL, Environmental Analysis Lab, in Southern Cross University, Lismore, NSW, Australia.
In the mid 90's EAL moved into specialized agricultural analysis primarily related to organic and biological farming. Soil, leaf & compost analysis is designed to enhance soil management and encourage reduced & targeted application of inorganic fertilisers.
