Consultant Opportunity – Development of farm ground cover plans and Toolbox

Posted in: 
Sustainable Industries

Wheatbelt NRM is seeking submissions from a suitably qualified consultant to carry out a whole farm planning process with identified farms across the Wheatbelt Region.

The consultant will also develop a Toolbox that will enable the whole farm planning to be implemented by farmers independently.

The purpose of the farm planning is to demonstrate a systems approach to implementing practices that maximises ground cover over summer for soil health and production outcomes.

It is expected that the final products will be

  • 12 individual farm plans for specific enterprises
  • A toolbox that provides an approach for farmers to develop their own farm plan

Over the next 4 years, parts of the farm plans will be implemented and will form the basis of community learning activities.

It is expected that the successful consultant will participate in field days and workshops.

If you are interested finding out more about this exciting work please contact Bonny Dunlop Heague 0477 885 514

Submissions must be received by 4.00 pm Friday 2 August.
