Northern Sustainable Soils

The Northern Sustainable Soils Group (NSS) provides a platform for information sharing between farmers and researchers in the Northern Yorke Peninsula (NYP) region. The NSS facilitates a number of farmer education events each year including a mix of crop walk, bus tours and machinery demonstrations. The group also carries out research into district specific issues in the form of small plot and paddock scale research trials.

The NSS has developed a strong network with SARDI, NYNRM, academia and commercial sectors. Through this network the NSS ensures growers are kept abreast of cutting edge research, new technology and best practice farming techniques. The NSS aims to ensure that farming business in the NYP continue to operate in a sustainable, productive and profitable manner into the future.
