‘Lynburn’ is a family run property north east of Wongan Hills at the top of the Avon River Catchment. Here Colin Lane and his parents Ross and Robin crop and run sheep. Colin came across Wheatbelt NRM’s Soil Conservation Incentive Program on the internet and instantly knew of an area on the farm that would benefit from revegetation. The Lane’s found that groundcover and climatic conditions had a significant effect on the survival rates of the seedlings. For example seedlings that were planted through a newly sown crop of barley were much more successful than the ones planted on bare ground.
