RAISED BED MANAGEMENT
Since 1989, SAM has been working on a complete Agricultural System for Horticulture and Broadacre Raised Bed Farming. This system is called the Raised Bed Management system or RBM.
The concept is to help farmers who use raised beds to become more sustainable by not working their soils to a destroyed state, and to be able to re-use their raised beds time after time after time. There should be no reason to ever demolish the original beds.
Through this method of farming, soil structure improves dramatically, the residues from the previous crop remaining on the beds to rot down to compost, becoming organic matter. Organic matter makes the soil more friable, encourages earth worms, holds valuable soil moisture and makes the soil less fragile to water and wind erosion.
The RBM System has been designed to improve productivity with all crops grown using raised beds : vegetables, herbs, essential oils, both summer and winter cereals, legumes and tobacco all benefiting in an increase in production.
This totally flexible and adaptable system has been designed to adapt to almost any crop, soil type, scale of development and agrinomic method of farming.
For the first time in Australia, and possibly the world, a company has designed a new and complete system of farming that will totally revamp old methods of farming and help sustain the world’s soils.
