Being a member of the Corrigin Farm Improvement Group, Bruce became aware of Wheatbelt NRM’s Soil Conservation Incentives Program after receiving a phone call from then Executive Officer, Sandy Turton. The allocated funds gave Bruce and other farmers in his area the opportunity to trial gland clover and serradella on their properties. Bruce sowed Prima gland clover at 5 kg/ha along with yellow serradella (2 kg/ha Yelbini and 1 kg/ ha Santorini), and pink serradella (1 kg/ha Erica/ Margurita) in a 45 ha paddock in autumn 2011. Inoculants for the clover and serradella were also in the mix; 10 kg/ha of ALOSCA Group C and 10kg/ha of ALSOCA Group S.
