Soil CRC Agricultural Farm Practices Survey 2024
This project considers the actual and intended practice of a broad base of farmers across Australian farming systems via a mail-based survey. The survey will be a modified but largely similar survey to one conducted on Eyre Peninsula in 2020 (see results of 2020 survey).
Improved understanding of farmers and their practices in our partner areas, over time, will help the CRC (and the farming groups) to better target their innovations, communications and contribute to their strategic planning.
This is a joint project between Southern Cross University, AIR EP and the EP Landscape Board.
