  • Sustainable Industries
    Our aim with this project is to increase the awareness, understanding and ability of Wheatbelt growers to adopt methods of sustainably managing Australia’s soil.
  • Sustainable Industries
    Using demonstration sites the ‘Maximising Fodder Options in Mixed Farming Systems’ project will showcase how taking a holistic approach to a range of forage and pasture options can change the outcome on livestock production and soil health.
  • Sustainable Industries
    The eConnected Grainbelt Demonstration project uses technology to help landholders make better-informed decisions for farm management. Using feedback from growers to develop better tools is an important part of the project.
  • Sustainable Industries
    This project will deliver Stage 3 of the Living Lakes initiative which involves implementing innovative engineering solutions and developing activation plans to enhance the amenity, use and visitation of two key lakes in regional Western Australia.
  • Sustainable Industries
    The Wheatbelt Champions project celebrated local farmers for trying new farming practices to increase productivity and sustainability and for encouraging others to follow their example.
  • Sustainable Industries
    The SaltCap project ran from October 2011 to June 2013. It aimed to help farmers choose what to plant and where in challenging saltland environments.
  • Sustainable Industries
    The Creating Connections Project ran between October 2011 and June 2013 in the south-eastern Wheatbelt. This project worked with farmers to help them plan revegetation activities on their farms in the Avon Wheatbelt IBRA region.
  • Seeder from the Air
    Sustainable Industries
    The Farming Landscapes for the Future – Decision Support for Farmers in Agroforestry project ran from October 2011 to June 2013. This project increased access to planning tools that help landholders add agroforestry to farming systems in the Avon NRM region.
  • Sustainable Industries
    The Climate Change project aimed to produce decision-making tools to support Landcare, grower and community groups in planning for climate change in the Wheatbelt.
  • Sustainable Industries
    The Regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitator (RALF) network is an initiative of the Commonwealth Department of Agriculture and Water Resources funded under the Regional Lands Partnership.
  • Sustainable Industries
    The trials and demonstrations project will help establish high-quality large and small scale demonstration sites across the Avon River Basin.
  • Sheep grazing in biodiverse agricultural system
    Sustainable Industries
    The Biodiverse Agroforestry project ran a 6-month trials program focussed on plantings with both biodiversity and production benefits.
  • Sustainable Industries
    The On-Farm Soil Monitoring Handbook was developed for farmers as a tool for monitoring soil health. The handbook was adapted from the ‘Monitoring Soil Science’ resource developed by SPICE.
  • Sustainable Industries
    Better management, harvesting and reuse of stormwater can increase resilience and amenity for Wheatbelt communities. By reducing our dependency on drinking water to irrigate town ovals, parks and gardens, we can also decrease management costs.
  • Sustainable Industries
    This project aims to assist farmers with adopting sustainable farming practices that enhance soil health without compromising yield.
