Sustainable Farms has launched a new booklet, Ten ways to improve the natural assets on a farm.
The booklet highlights ten discrete projects that farmers can undertake to improve the health of natural assets – such as dams, shelterbelts or riparian areas – on their properties.
The Ten Ways booklet highlights how one small change on a farm could create new habitat for native animals and lead to increased stock productivity.
The publication is underpinned by 20 years of long-term research into biodiversity on farms. It also represents a knowledge collaboration that’s occurred over two decades between the farmers who are undertaking management practices, and the ANU ecologists supporting farmers’ observations with science.
