WEBINAR – 26 January 2023
On January 26th, we will delve into the latest techniques and technologies for monitoring soil health. From remote sensing to in-situ measurements, we will cover the various methods for measuring key soil properties such as moisture content, nutrient levels, and organic matter. We will also discuss the importance of soil monitoring and its role in sustainable land management.
WEBINAR – 27 January 2023
On January 27th, we will focus on reforestation and the various strategies for restoring our forests. We will discuss the benefits of reforestation, including carbon sequestration, biodiversity conservation, and soil health improvement.
