Anderson, A., Kelly, J. and McKenzie, D. (Eds) (2007) Healthy Soils for Sustainable Vegetable Farms: Ute Guide & DVD. (Land & Water Australia and AUSVEG Ltd.)
The Healthy Soils for Sustainable Vegetable Farms: Ute Guide provides vegetable growers across Australia with a pictorial reference tool to assist them to measure, record, interpret, manage and monitor the health of their soil and to put in place practices that will maintain and restore soil health, sustainability, productivity and profitability. The Ute Guide is the foundation output of a three component project which includes: the Ute Guide; the Healthy Soils for Sustainable Vegetable Farms: Resource Manual; and the ‘How To’ DVD profiling growers experiences in adopting the outlined soil management practices.
The Ute Guide ‘Healthy Soils for Sustainable Vegetable Farms’ is a product of the Healthy Soils for Sustainable Farms Programme. The Healthy Soils for Sustainable Farms Programme is funded by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry through the Natural Heritage Trust in partnership with the GRDC and is managed by Land & Water Australia. The project was managed through the AUSVEG Ltd Enviroveg project led by Helena Whitman and included Dr Alison Anderson (NSW Vegetable Industry Development Officer), Jim Kelly (Arris Pty Ltd) and Dr David McKenzie (E. A. Systems Pty Ltd).
