Production and Environment Partnerships

Project Overview

Ag Excellence Alliance is leading an innovative project to bring together grains industry and natural resources management (NRM) people to work together in extending sustainable farm practices on key production issues that have clear environmental outcomes. The project is working with seven NRM/CMA/LLS regions and five farming systems groups across South Australia, Victoria and NSW to identify their production issues, and then to develop and deliver an extension and communications program to address the issues.
