Through the use of the dung beetles, the impact of drought is reduced through:
– Improved grass root and water penetration
– Improved soil structure
– Improved habitat and food supply for earthworms.
– This means an enormous sector of Australian crops and farmland can be saved even in situations of dire straits.
John asks the questions. Does your farm machine:
Aerate the soil?
Help store soil carbon?
Bury dung pads?
Bury dung in the plant root zone?
Deepen the topsoil?
Reduce bush fly and parasite breeding?
Dig through compact soil?
And dung beetles don’t use precious fossil fuels!
