Grassroots case study: Simon Mattsson

Case study

Simon Mattsson | Marian, 30 km west of Mackay

Simon, along with his wife Sue and children Luke and Sophie, own and manage 190 hectares at Marian, west of Mackay. In rotation with sugarcane grown on two-metre, controlled-traffic rows, Simon also produces soybean and chickpeas. Simon developed an interest in soil health and biology after noticing a continual downward trend in sugar production.
