Soil Surveys    more info

Soil physical and chemical properties play a major role in the success of any agricultural system. An inventory of the soil and land resources for a property can provide data for numerous planning and management purposes. The majority of existing soil data is collected at a regional scale, which means the information will not provide sufficient information for farm scale planning and management. To provide a better understanding of the soil resource, more detailed mapping is essential. FSA Consulting has experienced soil surveyors to undertake site specific soil assessments and/or sampling for your property.

MEDLI Modelling of Effluent Reuse     more info

Environmental Protection Agencies demand that effluent treatment and irrigation systems be designed for environmental sustainability. This is a complex problem with a multitude of variables and solutions. FSA Consulting uses the MEDLI model to provide alternative solutions.

MEDLI is a daily-time-step hydrological and nutrient simulation model that estimates the quantity and quality of effluent produced by piggeries, sewage treatment plants, abattoirs, food factories, tanneries etc. It then simulates, over extended periods, the hydrological and nutrient balance of connected effluent treatment ponds and irrigation systems. Local daily climatic data (for up to 100 years), effluent stream data and site-specific soils information are input data for the model. MEDLI consists of validated sub-models of crop growth; nutrient, salt and water movement in soils; and groundwater recharge.
