Trialling best cropping practices for maximum soil cover

Key Messages
• Consider maintaining good groundcover to reduce topsoil loss particularly
over the summer months. Cover crops offer a quick solution to maximise
biomass.
• Brown manuring is a high return option in low rainfall areas; however
remember seasonal variation can influence the financial outcomes of farming
practices.
• Protect the soil; it is your main asset.
• Making trials locally relevant is important for community participation
