This forum provides an opportunity to:
- increase awareness of soil related projects, research and extension activities occurring within southern QLD and northern NSW (SQNNSW)
- increase awareness of national level soil related programs
- identify opportunities for collaboration, research avenues and practice change
- raise issues/identify barriers to adoption that can be furthered at the national level via the Soil Science Extension Community of Practice
- support the enhancement of soil knowledge and capacity amongst producers, service industries and other soil stakeholders.
The focus of this forum will be projects funded by the National Landcare Programs Drought Resilient Soils and Landscapes grants. Six projects totalling $5.4 million worth of investment have been awarded for extension activities across SQNNSW. The forum is your opportunity to find out more about these projects.
This forum is organised by the SQNNSW Innovation Hub Regional Soil Coordinator. The Regional Soil Coordinator is funded by the Australian Government Smart Farms Initiative; Building Landcare Community and Capacity: Soil Extension Activities.
