After more than two decades of developing the conservation farming methods of ‘ pasture cropping’, grazing techniques and general land management, life-long fourth generation farmer, Colin Seis is offering his services as an agriculture management consultant.
Colin’s work hasn’t gone unnoticed with his efforts earning him the prestigious ‘Central West Conservation Farmer of The Year’ award in 2005, the ‘Nation Carbon Farmer’ in 2007. the Australian Green Agriculture and Innovation award 2012 (GAIA), which is awarded for leading contributions to soil health and sequestration of carbon, and Colins most recent award in September 2014 was winning Australia’s most prestigious farming and environmental award, the National Bob Hawke Landcare award.
Colin has been asked to speak at numerous conferences and to consult on farms and properties all over the world.
The need for a change in land management practices for many landholders is highlighted by the issues of declining profitability, loss of grasslands, poor soil structure, dry land salinity, poor soil health, soil acidification, and increasingly, herbicide resistant weeds. Colin is offering consultancy services that will address many of these problems. This will lead to year round ground cover of perennial plants which will give increased profitability from improved soil health, organic soil carbon levels and availability of naturally occurring soil nutrients which ultimately leads to increased stock carrying capacity, increased crop yields, reduced crop disease and reduced costs.
