Welcome to Soil Systems Australia

Truly sustainable farming and water management in the future must be based on regenerating (or rebuilding) poor and unproductive soils. Soil Systems Australia was set up in September 1999 to provide practical advice for producers and companies interested in regenerative land management. Our company was founded on the principle that all activities on the land must protect the natural processes that produce stable soil humus, the most precious form of soil carbon. We have developed these regenerative processes in Australia on a wide variety of soil types in climates ranging from arid to tropical.

We guide companies and producers who need assistance with project management, agronomy, horticulture, commercial and on-farm composting, organic consultancy, dairy production, waste water management (for rendering plants & abattoirs), mine rehabilitation, soil remediation, establishing market gardens, education and soil surveys.

After 14 years, Soil Systems Australia has learnt that soil management in Australia and elsewhere needs to focus on organic matter and mineral nutrition. When this is implemented, environmental degradation is reduced and food quality enhanced. It is with this background and desire to produce nutrient dense, tasty and seasonal food that we purchased a peri-urban farm to supply the local community with low carbon footprint fresh quality organic vegetables.

Into the future, we are looking for clients who understand all about holistic management. We have a strong passion for applied science with tangible solutions. With degenerative diseases in society rising dramatically, soil management and farming needs to look at its critical links to quality organic matter and mineral nutrition. To every business this is both a challenge and opportunity and we at Soil Systems Australia want to help you through this transition.
