Minimum till in horticulture

Bill and Bernadette Bulmer started with a small 30 hectare dairy farm in the 1970’s and have grown this into today’s 500 hectare intensive vegetable growing operation. The business, now run by Andrew and Kaine Bulmer, is one of the largest vegetable growing enterprises in the Mitchell River valley in East Gippsland, Victoria.

The Bulmer’s together with the Soil Wealth team are now trialling a range of soil cultivation practices which reduce the amount of tilage required and enhance the soil health benefits of cover crops.
