If you are in an area where you can grow truffles you should have a look at that, 100-200 acres is plenty. its a gamble that you will only find out if you are a winner or not in 5 years time but if your plantation starts to produce you will be in the $. Im not in a position to take a gamble like thi...

Hi Jenni, Im no expert, others please feel free to correct me but I'd like to try and help anyway: My basic understanding is that if you are trying to revive a paddock then any vegetation that grows is good, nature will take care of itself, no need for spraying anything out. You can then speed this ...

Sounds great. I take Gary is a crop farmer then? I have to say my farming friends are sceptical to say the least, although its encouraging to see that he and quite a number of other farmers aren't ploughing after the harvest like they used to as they recognise the damage it does. The deep drains run...

Thanks very much for your reply. I guess I just wanted confirmation that bracken fern doesnt really need special treatment. You'll be happy to know weve been letting the grass (and weeds) just grow and mulch up over the past two years. Im now not so paranoid about weeds having read your two books, s...

climate change

you-d have to say the climate has changed and odds are its because of human intervention. polar ice caps that have been around for thousands of years are vanishing. I must say Peter's theory on land clearing being a major reason for climate change is an interesting one. I think if nsf was adopted wh...

Bracken Fern Control - Should I/Shouldnt I - What do I do??

First part of my question is - Is Bracken Fern a weed? It would appear so given that it makes stock quite sick (although the aboriginals used to eat it??) The thing that concerns me is that the literature seems to say it will take over pasture unless controlled as it will out compete the grasses. So...

Start up Donations to help spread the word

Hi Peter, I really think you should set up some kind of a donation fund that will allow you to travel more and spread the word. I imagine it would start off slowly but there are clearly people out there that believe in what it is you are doing and will happily donate. You are literally trying to sav...
