Biodynamic Soil

Biodynamic farming aims to create healthy soil using compost and crop and grazing rotations. At Yalla-y-poora Grove, each year all tree prunings, together with an inter-row crop are mulched using a flail mower and incorporated into the soil using a special plough called a “rehabilitator”. This does not cut the soil like a disk plough but rather breaks open the soil using a series of horizontal chisel point tynes mounted on narrow shanks. Air & the mulched plant material is then incorporated with a pair of spiked rollers. The result is excellent incorporation of carbon into the soil with minimal damage to soil structure.

We aim to spray the “prepared 500” preparation over the soil twice a year – nominally in Autumn & Spring depending on local climatic conditions.
