Smart Farms success in the Wheatbelt

Posted in: 
Sustainable Industries

It was exciting to see some success for WA agriculture organisations as part of the Smart Farms Small Grants recently announced in a media release from the Minister for Agriculture, Drought and Emergency Management, David Littleproud.

The Corrigin Farm Improvement Group will be working in soil acidity by using gypsum and lime and the Katanning LCDC is investigating transitioning from conventional to biological fertiliser inputs.

Our NRM WA friends at the Northern Agricultural Catchments Council will be demonstrating the benefits of using summer grown legumes as a method to reduce the damage done to soils.

Congratulations we look forward to sharing the outcomes of these projects with our community.

There is a number of other WA projects that would be of interest to WA farmers. You can see the entire list here - www.agriculture.gov.au/sites/default/files/documents/smart-farms-small-grants-round-3-list-successful-projects.pdf
