Susan Orgill

Visiting Fellow, Fenner School

Susan Orgill has worked for NSW DPI since 2005 on a range of soil health projects, and has worked as a researcher with the Soils Unit since 2012. Susan’s current research focuses on management strategies to increase carbon in agricultural soil. Her areas of interest are carbon fractionation, subsoil carbon sequestration, management of pastures to increase soil organic matter and dynamics of carbon in the rangelands. Susan's PhD (through the Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation at Charles Sturt University) investigated the environmental (climate and parent material) and land management (soil fertility and grazing management) factors that influence organic carbon accumulation under perennial pastures in southern NSW.
