Initiative 54

Evergraze B.GSM.0008

On-farm trials of research and development are critical to achieving better environmental outcomes and more profitable farming.

Research undertaken by A Future Farm Industries Cooperative Research Centre Council, Meat & Livestock Australia and Australian Wool Innovation research and delivery partnership.

What are we doing?

Targeted research at 6 proof sites, associated with component research at over 50 sites contributed to the development of over 570 resources and a number of training packages.  The resources can be accessed at www.evergraze.com.au. As a result, at least 2,300 farmers have changed their practices, resulting in a net benefit to industry of over $300m. This project was a finalist in the 2014 Eureka Awards for Sustainable Agriculture.
