Have you got an innovative idea to improve natural resource management on agricultural land?

Smart Farms Small Grants Round Four has opened this week.

Up to $6.5 million is available for Round Four, with grants ranging from $5,000 to $100,000 (GST exclusive).

Applications close 9 October 2020.

Projects must be completed by 30 June 2023.

Grants are available to support a wide range of projects around:

  • soil health
  • pest and weed management
  • farm production efficiency
  • Indigenous involvement
  • climate and market risk
  • use of new technologies to improve sustainable practices 

In previous rounds the Corrigin Farm Improvement Group looked at acidic soils, Katanning LCDC looked at transitioning to regenerative practices and NACC investigated summer grown legumes. What is your idea?
