Event Details

 

Come Join us for the Launch of the new Fleurieu Forward Farming Board!!

Thursday 26th April 2018, 6.00 for 6.30 pm at the McCracken Country Club

Fleurieu Forward Farming works with the region’s primary producers and landholder groups to identify and develop research, development and extension opportunities that make a positive difference to the farming systems and natural resources of the Fleurieu Peninsula

We have just appointed a new Board to lead and drive the group forward into its next phase of development. The Board is made up of a mix of local primary producers and service providers, who collectively have excellent combined skills, experience and networks

Come join us for a two course dinner and meet the new Board and wish them well!!

Organiser

Fleurieu Forward Farming

The Fleurieu Forward Farming steering committee was formed in April 2016, as a cooperative venture between the Parawa Agricultural Bureau and the Fleurieu Beef Group, also involving local independent agribusiness consultants, to provide oversight for projects looking at soil fertility and health issues that affect pasture and thus grazing enterprise productivity, in the western Fleurieu Peninsula sub-region of SA.

Projects have included literature reviews, field trials, field days, case study trial sites, soil moisture probes and workshops. Current and past projects can be viewed under our projects tab and include:
• A review of past soil research carried out on the Fleurieu Peninsula
• Biochar trials
• pH and EM mapping demonstrations
• Soil health case studies under conventional and alternative farming systems
• Soil health replicated trials
