demonstrating-sustainableThe Fert$mart project aims to assist dairy farmers with their soil and fertility management.  Benefits of Fert$mart are many including; on farm savings of nutrients resulting in financial rewards, determining the right product for your soils, at the right rates and potentially nutrients being retained on farm resulting in less nutrients entering the broader catchment.

demonstrating-sustainableAre you a farmer who has a great idea relating to sustainable agriculture and would like to test your idea to see if it actually works? Have you ever wished that funding was available to trial something that you think has great benefit to the farming community? This is your opportunity! The Western Port Catchment Landcare Network can assist farmers to establish demonstration sites on up to 40 farms within the Western Port or Yarra catchments to showcase sustainable farming practices. Expression on Interests and more information is available in Word Format and PDF Format.
