Nutrition Farming will help you reclaim your passion for the most important of all professions.
The Power of Plant Growth Promotion - Part 2
Following on from last month's episode, here we continue to explore the potential of Plant Growth Promoters (PGPs). This information may be particularly timely in light of the massive price hike in NPK fertilisers and farm chemicals – perhaps it's now time to consider alternative yield-building strategies. In this episode, we focus upon chitinase and the capacity of this enzyme to boost protection and production. We will also look at liquid vermicast, and the exciting potential of this low-cost, DIY inoculum, as a PGP. The human health component further illuminates pathways to avoid the death of desire. Here, we will consider the health and longevity benefits integral to the reclamation of lost libido.

The Power of Plant Growth Promotion - Stimulating Yield, Quality and Resilience
Discover the fascinating world of biostimulants in this month's episode of the Nutrition Farming Podcast. Natural inputs that stimulate plant health, resilience and yield are becoming essential tools to help counter both the extremes of climate change and the challenge of rising fertiliser costs. Biostimulants can include both natural substances and specific microorganisms. In part 1 of what will be a 2-part feature, we take an in-depth look at kelp, and learn about five remarkable Bacillus organisms that are Plant Growth Promoting Bacteria (PGPB). The human health segment is entitled “The Death of Desire - In Search of Lost Libido”. Here, the focus is upon the critical importance of caring for your libido in terms of sexual health and wellness.

Water Management - Nurturing the New Gold
In this month’s episode, the focus is on water management. Nutrition Farming is about the interplay between minerals, microbes and humus, but there is a fourth component that is arguably the most important requirement. Water is fast becoming the ‘new gold’, and yet it is so often mismanaged. In this episode, you will discover a host of strategies to maximise water utilisation. You will also learn about a breakthrough technology from South Africa that addresses multiple water quality issues. The human health component this month focuses upon stress-busting strategies, to help sponsor some relief in a pressure cooker world.

Managing Magnesium - Chlorophyll, Carbohydrates & Climate Change
In this episode, we return to the mineral story with a focus on magnesium. This mineral seriously impacts photosynthesis, root growth, plant immunity and nitrogen use efficiency and yet it is so often ignored in the nutrition equation. Here you will discover the cost of that oversight, particularly relevant to climate change resilience. The human health component is entitled "Magnesium – the Master Mineral". This is our largest mineral deficiency and yet it is profoundly linked to heart health, stroke protection, immunity and stress.

Where to from Here? A Ten Point Action Plan
After offering an avalanche of information over the past 16 podcasts, I decided it was time to condense this whirlwind into a simple ten point action plan to help you build your farm's profitability, sustainably. If you could tick off just half of this checklist, you would see measurable yield and quality increases. If you adopt all ten strategies, I promise you there will be smiles at season's end. The human health component this month is about butyrate and its impact on gut health. Here you will discover the remarkable healing potential of butyric acid, and learn about resistant starch, lectins and leaky gut.

The Mycorrhizal Marvel - The Gains From Reclaiming AMF
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 Resilience - The Secrets Of Nitrogen’s Silent Sister
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.

The Bones on Boron – The Cell Strength Essential
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.

Earthworms & Mineral Management
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.
