Farming for Sustainable Soils

The soils of north central Victoria, together with the region's water and vegetation resources, form the essential base that both natural ecosystems and agriculture depend upon. The health of the land is intimately linked to the health of the soil.

This project recognises soil as an important asset that should be protected and managed for future generations. Achieving this goal means working collaboratively with regional farming communities in the quest for greater soil integrity pursued through an adaptive, community-based learning approach.

The focus of the work is on providing the carbon needed to build the structural integrity required to mitigate wind erosion in times of reduced rainfall and much greater seasonal climatic variability.
