Over three consecutive years, researchers study conservation agriculture conditions in under-developed coastal environments in South Asia.
Evidence suggests conservation agriculture can maintain the sustainability of agri-food systems in regions impaired by soil salinity and sodicity.
This metagenomics study examines how application of organic material alters soil microbial populations and functionality in soil from permanent beds with residue retention.
Cropping diversity, soil-enriching crops, and adding organic material to soils can boost food-crop yields for farmers who can’t apply fertilizer.
Reeves has been appointed a Member (AM) of the Order of Australia for significant service to sustainable agriculture research and production.
Multiple studies show conventional farming practices degrade soils, deplete aquifers and feed rampant greenhouse gas emissions.
