This podcast interview represents a unique collaboration between Holistic Management International and the Agroinnovations Podcast. The Holistic Management Series of the Agroinnovations Podcast is a series of eight interviews conducted with researchers and scientists. The focus on these interviews will be past and current attempts to use research methods for better understanding the relationship between the HM decision-making framework, the people who use it, and the land that they manage. These interviews will be available here on the HM Data and Documentation blog, and also via the Agroinnovations Podcast page. The Agroinnovations Podcast is also broadcast on WMRW, a low power FM station in the Mad River valley of Vermont.
In this first episode of the Holistic Management series, we are joined by Dr. Judi Earl of Holistic Management International Australia. Dr. Earl is a researcher who supports HM practitioners in Australia. We discuss the shortcomings of research in whole systems management, the use of animal impact as a tool to heal land, the differences between stocking density and stocking rate, the power of Holistic Planned Grazing, and Judi’s research on grass utilization as an indicator for effective management.
