This podcast series is designed for food producers seeking to increase the nutrient density, flavour and medicinal value of their produce. You will discover multiple strategies to increase profitability, productivity and sustainability, in a wonderful win/win scenario. Nutrition Farming will help you reclaim your passion for the most important of all professions.
A fascinating insight into the multi-function marvel that is mycorrhizal fungi. 90% of these remarkable creatures are missing in action in our farming soils. Here, you will realise what is means to have lost this workforce, and you will also discover just how they were destroyed. As usual, Graeme Sait will also provide the practical tips and strategies to reclaim this biological essential. The human health segment will focus upon a remarkable regenerative game changer, called autophagy.
Sulphur is considered the fourth most important mineral and yet it is deficient in most soils we test. In this episode, you will come to understand the price of this neglect. Plant, animal and human immunity are sulphur dependent. If you are seeking to reduce chemicals and increase sustainability and profit, then you really need to understand the dynamics of this key player. In this fascinating session you will discover when, why and how to use sulphur, and you will be gifted a recipe for an amazing, DIY, multi-purpose garlic spray. The human health segment will focus on liver health relative to all-important sulphur compounds.
Understand the high cost of boron neglect in both your soil and your body. Crop resilience, productivity (from early establishment to flowering & fruit fill) and quality are all dramatically impacted when this mineral is missing. Similarly, in our bodies, joint health, bone density, libido, memory and cognition all suffer in the absence of boron. Learn tips to address a boron deficiency – both in the soil and in your body.
Discover why reclaiming earthworms in your soil can be a hallmark of high production fertility. This episode also includes in-depth explanations of the interplay between minerals - understanding these key mineral ratios can be a genuine game changer. You will be encouraged to address sulphur deficiencies, to master the “money mineral” (potassium), and to brew your own living workforce. There is also a segment covering personal health strategies that can help you live a longer, happier life.
We kick off Season 2 with a jam-packed episode entitled "Five Profit Building Tips". In addition to five exciting soil and plant health strategies, there is also a valuable segment on personal immune health, as well as Graeme's customary dose of humour. This month's episode covers: 1) The importance of putting the microbes behind the minerals; 2) Building cell wall strength for proactive pest management 3) The "fulvic flush", a super-productive soil cleansing strategy; 4) The yield-building potential of humates; and 5) Helpful tips for foliar fertilising.
It has been estimated that we utilise less than 25% of our DAP/MAP investment and the lion’s share becomes locked up in our farming soils. This equates to losses of hundreds of billions of dollars globally. Discover how to reclaim your frozen P reserves with specialist microbes, humates, cover crops and cattle.
The first of a two-part feature on phosphorus. Here, you will discover the key roles of ‘the energy mineral’, while appreciating the difficulties in using this super unstable input. Understanding how to improve phosphate management can seriously improve yield and crop quality, while reducing pest pressure. You will be fascinated by strategies to reclaim your huge frozen phosphate reserves and you will be excited at the cost-saving potential of simple P-stabilising tips.
Graeme Sait continues to share tips and strategies that will optimise the potential of foliar fertilising. This resilience-enhancing, yield-building practice can also increase flavour and shelf life while maximizing crop quality and profitability. In this fascinating continuation, Graeme shares multiple tips, including DYI chelation, in-field monitoring, timing, uptake enhancement and putting the microbes behind the minerals.
Foliar fertilising was once reserved for greenhouse growers and intensive horticulture, but much has changed. In Episode 6 of the Nutrition Farming Podcast, you will discover why this practice has now been widely adopted in all forms of agriculture. Graeme Sait shares all the tips and strategies you can utilise to maximise foliar response in this information-packed episode. He will also detail the mechanics of in-field monitoring, including a new way to interpret tissue tests.
No one enjoys donning a chem suit to drench their work zone and fresh produce in questionable farm chemicals, but many believe they simply have no option. In a changing world, where consumers increasingly demand clean food and environmental stewardship from their food producers, it is time to explore the ‘no choice’ premise. In Episode 5 of the Nutrition Farming podcast, Graeme Sait returns to root causes and explores viable alternatives to chemical intervention.
In this episode, the focus is on Nitrogen. How can we manage the most abundant mineral in the plant more effectively? Nitrogen is the most mismanaged of all minerals and this poor understanding drives a host of costly problems. Discover how to successfully stabilise, magnify, recycle, store and balance nitrogen, while accessing a greater percentage of this mineral free from the atmosphere.
In this episode of the Nutrition Farming Podcast, you will discover key strategies to boost organic matter and associated soil health. Cover cropping and compost are both considered, as part of a ten-part strategy, that also includes microbial stimulation, DIY inoculums, herbiciding alternatives and bringing back the mighty earthworm.
In this second episode of The Nutrition Farming Podcast, we focus upon much needed strategies to build immune system resilience and reduce viral impact. You will discover several nutrition strategies including key minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients and probiotics to maximise your resistance.
In this introduction to Nutrition Farming, presenter Graeme Sait explains the core principles behind this revolutionary approach to farming. Graeme Sait is an expert on regenerative agriculture and internationally-acclaimed speaker and educator. His focus is simply on how to grow good food, both profitably and sustainably. Nutrition Farming strategies aim to achieve maximum health and resilience for the soil, plants, livestock, people and the planet. It is a truly holistic approach that is both science-based and pragmatic; the goal is to address the root cause of problems rather than the ongoing treatment of symptoms.
