Dr Maarten Stapper Perennials – Diversity – Grazing Management & Biological Cropping with Max Lewis
Maarten Stapper is a farming systems agronomist with 40 years experience, a former senior scientist with CSIRO who was awarded a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Agricultural Science and Technology. Employing a holistic approach, he is an expert across a wide spectrum of agricultural areas in research, development and extension. He has found regenerative farming, improving soils with low external input, the most sustainable for producers, consumers and landscapes. Maarten’s focus as a private consultant, is on farming systems that help farmers improve the profitability of their operations by harnessing the power of natural processes with practices creating healthy soils and improving quality of produce. Maarten featured in the ABC Australian Story “Back to Earth” in 2009 about this new road in food production research away from synthetic fertilizers, chemicals and needs for GMO.
