Shane a passionate horticulturalist with 20 years’ experience in Organic farming and together with the family runs the largest organic banana farm in South Africa, at over 1800 hectares which employs over 2000 workers!
In 2015, the family farm was losing productivity due to high costs, heat stress, insect pressure, diseases and decreasing yields. The farm in spite of being certified organic ”EU” for over 19 years was under strain, but thanks to Dr Elaine's work and online courses, Shane was able to redirect the farms growing methods.
Shane quickly worked his way through the online classes and quickly implemented a sustainable biological plan. This meant producing and using large quantities of biologically active compost and compost teas.
Over a single season, Shane dramatically increased yields and reduced impute costs. He is currently assisting others in the Soil Foodweb Advisers program as well as African based growers.

“When you came over to visit, James went into some detail about the work that was being carried out on our soil and trees by treating them with a special “Compost tea” to promote better soil and tree health. Recently, Glyn Mitchell came along to check soil and tree samples to analyse progress, just one year on. The results were astonishing and coupled with a record harvest we have good reason to suspect that we are definitely on the right track and will continue with our project, without the need for harmful chemicals or jeopardising our Organic status”.

Testing: Compost and soil testing for the presence and quantity of soil food web elements. Reports include guidance for interpreting of the result and initial advice on steps needed for improvement. We accept samples from all of the UK providing they are sent on a next day delivery. Please email or phone to set a date for testing to ensure a prompt service. Our vision is to fully replace chemical agriculture with the biological approach developed by soil food web scientists, with methods pioneered by Dr. Ingham.
Finding quality commercial compost is hard, however we have compiled a list of commercial composters that have been certified by Dr. Ingham. These commercial composters have biologically active compost that is verified each year.
