Nationals Leader Warren Truss, Senator Barnaby Joyce and Richmond Nationals candidate Tania Murdock visited the Tweed Valley farm of ACFA NSW Director Robert Quirk. Robert is internationally famous as a farmer and agri-scientist.
The presentation by Robert and Dr Jeff Parr of Plantstones was entitled, How the Tweed and the environment will benefit from carbon soil sequestration; a discussion on BMP and carbon acumulation in sugar cane crops. They spoke about plantstones and biochar, and how we as farmers may be able to use these technologies for carbon accounting and to reduce CO2 emissions from sugar cane land.
