This podcast series is designed for food producers seeking to increase the nutrient density, flavour and medicinal value of their produce. You will discover multiple strategies to increase profitability, productivity and sustainability, in a wonderful win/win scenario. Nutrition Farming will help you reclaim your passion for the most important of all professions.
Water Management - Nurturing the New Gold
In this month’s episode, the focus is on water management. Nutrition Farming is about the interplay between minerals, microbes and humus, but there is a fourth component that is arguably the most important requirement. Water is fast becoming the ‘new gold’, and yet it is so often mismanaged. In this episode, you will discover a host of strategies to maximise water utilisation. You will also learn about a breakthrough technology from South Africa that addresses multiple water quality issues. The human health component this month focuses upon stress-busting strategies, to help sponsor some relief in a pressure cooker world.
Managing Magnesium - Chlorophyll, Carbohydrates & Climate Change
In this episode, we return to the mineral story with a focus on magnesium. This mineral seriously impacts photosynthesis, root growth, plant immunity and nitrogen use efficiency and yet it is so often ignored in the nutrition equation. Here you will discover the cost of that oversight, particularly relevant to climate change resilience. The human health component is entitled "Magnesium – the Master Mineral". This is our largest mineral deficiency and yet it is profoundly linked to heart health, stroke protection, immunity and stress.
Where to from Here? A Ten Point Action Plan
After offering an avalanche of information over the past 16 podcasts, I decided it was time to condense this whirlwind into a simple ten point action plan to help you build your farm's profitability, sustainably. If you could tick off just half of this checklist, you would see measurable yield and quality increases. If you adopt all ten strategies, I promise you there will be smiles at season's end. The human health component this month is about butyrate and its impact on gut health. Here you will discover the remarkable healing potential of butyric acid, and learn about resistant starch, lectins and leaky gut.
A Composting Passion – Enhancing your Purpose, Profit and Planet
This is a two-hour special that you might choose to enjoy in two or three sittings. In this fascinating, marathon episode, you will discover the benefits, the pitfalls and the profit-building potential of multiple composting methods. You will learn what to embrace and what to avoid in raw materials and we will review the exciting promise of the Johnson/Su Bioreactor. The human health component features the story of free radicals and the antioxidants that quell their fires.
The Mycorrhizal Marvel - The Gains From Reclaiming AMF
A fascinating insight into the multi-function marvel that is mycorrhizal fungi. 90% of these remarkable creatures are missing in action in our farming soils. Here, you will realise what is means to have lost this workforce, and you will also discover just how they were destroyed. As usual, Graeme Sait will also provide the practical tips and strategies to reclaim this biological essential. The human health segment will focus upon a remarkable regenerative game changer, called autophagy.
Sulphur Resilience - The Secrets Of Nitrogen’s Silent Sister
Sulphur is considered the fourth most important mineral and yet it is deficient in most soils we test. In this episode, you will come to understand the price of this neglect. Plant, animal and human immunity are sulphur dependent. If you are seeking to reduce chemicals and increase sustainability and profit, then you really need to understand the dynamics of this key player. In this fascinating session you will discover when, why and how to use sulphur, and you will be gifted a recipe for an amazing, DIY, multi-purpose garlic spray. The human health segment will focus on liver health relative to all-important sulphur compounds.
Finally! Super helpful for nutrition
I especially liked the Immune system episode, he talks the facts about what humans are deficient in (vitamins and minerals) and gives you ideas to supplement to be at your best health. Most useful 30 minutes all people should hear for optimal daily functioning. Thank you!
Nutrition Rules! (2003) is one of my favorite books. So many helpful and insightful nuggets there for the finding. Graeme’s podcast is similarly rich. Could not agree more with the pen and paper comment although for me sometimes it’s easier to just re-listen, which I often do. In the agronomy world everyone wants to make a buck off of you. With Graeme it’s clear that he’s more interested in helping farmers do the important work of detoxing our farms and stemming the tide of climate change.
This podcast is wonderful. Not only do you get plant nutrition explained in a comprehensive manner, human health explained in a meaningful manner, but you get jokes too!!! It is a truely great podcast connecting the dots of plant health and human health (and global health) in ways that laymen can comprehend and implement. Wonderful job, thank you!
