Welcome to the official website of Dr Maarten Stapper.
Dr. Stapper is a farming systems agronomist who's main focus is helping farmers improve the profitability of their operations by harnessing the power of natural healthy soil processes.
Maarten believies that by improving the use of inputs and understanding those practices that negatively impact on soil health farmers can have a positive impact on their land and production.
Through Maarten’s research work, discussions with Landcare groups and a wide range of farmers, he has come to the belief that science must take a broader view to achieve the sustainable development of agricultural industries.
To achieve this we have to look at the whole farming system - where every thing is linked to everything else.
Harnessing over 40 years experience as a scientist and farming systems agronomist Dr Maarten Stapper now works as a private consultant assisting farmers in the transition from industrial to biological farming systems.
Maarten speaks regularly across the continent and can provide a range of consulting services to groups and individuals.
