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
