    Completed Projects

    2012-2015 BMP Carbon Management on Northern Rivers Farms

    Funds: $78,000

    Source: Northern Rivers Catchment Management Authority

    Contract: NR-EF-CARMGT-1I

    The projects aim is to establish 25 Best Managment Practice (BMP) Soil Carbon management demonstration farms across a range of industries (beef, sheep, dairy, soybeans, winter cereals vegetables, bananas and grapes) extending from the Richmond catchment in the north to the Hastings catchment in the south. Five of the sites are in the tablelands landscape. Each farmer will be offered a monetary incentive to change land management practices such as application of compost/chicken manure and reduction of nitrogenous fertilisers; application of mulch crops, reuse of dairy by products and implementation of grazing and cropping practices to optimise groundcover with an aim of increasing Soil Organic Carbon (SOC).
