Renowned dung beetle expert Dr Bernard Doube and organic agriculture expert Tim Marshall have teamed up to produce a new publication on dung beetles. Dung beetles: a friend to farmers and the environment is the definitive resource for farmers and land managers on the benefits and use of dung beetles.
Covering both native and introduced species, this A4 colour booklet outlines the agricultural and environmental benefits of dung beetles. There are sections on soil improvement, water quality improvement and pasture improvement, along with detailed descriptions and guidelines on the establishment and management of dung beetle colonies.
The publication will also feature specific regional information (at least one page per region) that will enable the booklet to have local relevance for your stakeholders. Commonwealth funding for one region in South Australia to produce 1500 copies and these will be available only to the sponsoring group in that region.
Additional commitments to printing this definitive publication will enable a much wider group of stakeholders to enjoy its benefits.
