Continuous Improvement of Soil Management to Support Resilient Farming Systems
This project will assist land managers throughout the SE NRM region to build healthier, more robust soils by innovative management of soil constraints, and increasing organic carbon and soil microbial activity.
This will enable land managers to better manage risk and withstand the challenges of the future such as adapting to climate change and realise the full potential of soil, land and water use efficiency.
It will result in increased productivity, profitability and sustainability, and improve landholder knowledge through a combination of trials, demonstrations, and workshops.
