What is this Australian Soil Management you speak of?
Australian Soil Management (ASM) is an innovative and dynamic company that assists Land Managers in building better quality soils through the scientific management of soil organic matter and soil organic carbon. ASM provides tailor-made soil management strategies.
Soil with more Organic Matter is more productive, more profitable and more sustainable. The benefits are savings on fertilizers, pesticides and water. You spend less to make more and your profits increase.
What we will do for your land
Free carbon dioxide (CO2) in the air is an opportunity to improve soils for Land Managers. The more CO2 captured as soil organic matter and carbon in soils the better the results from your enterprise.
ASM will assess your Soil Organic Matter “bank account” and your soil quality. We will identify the best ways to increase Soil Organic Matter, maximize profits and reduce costs.
ASM plans a gradual process of change, without restricting your current land usage, to the point where you do not need expensive fertilizers and pesticides. You will use a lot less water for the same or better result than you have now.
Other Land Managers have already been on this journey. They are the pioneers and also the living proof that managing Soil Organic Matter actually delivers. Case Studies show how this can be done.
How long will it take?
After the assessment of your land’s potential, and the implementation of the Soil Management Strategy, you will slowly start to see the benefits as Soil Organic Matter levels increase. It may take you months or years to get there. For example, if you buy in tonnes of compost, manure or other organic fertilizer you can build up your Soil Organic Matter “bank account” very quickly. However, depending on the land under management and if you have lots of land to manage, it may be cheaper to gradually change your management practices to reach the same goal. It will take longer but will probably be cheaper in the end.
