GETTING THE DIRT ON SOIL TESTING!

Our team recently upskilled in the soil testing space so we can support Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development - DPIRD to provide soil testing services to as many Geographe Bay farmers as possible in 2021. The team put their new skills to practice, soil sampling 140 paddocks across the largest dairy farm in our Catchment this week – that’s a lot of dirt!

Soil testing is a critical part of sustainable farm management. Whole-farm soil testing reveals nutrient deficiencies and highlights where soil nutrient levels are adequate, so that fertiliser applications can meet the needs of the soil. That means healthy pastures and less run off into our waterways.

This footage of the Vasse River was taken in late September 2020, showcasing the important natural values still retained by our river. What a difference a few short months makes. As the weather has warmed up, we are now seeing algal blooms in the river which will continue through the summer months. These algal blooms are caused by nutrients entering the river from surrounding agricultural and urban catchments, sediments and septics.

We have been working with our partners for over 20 years to improve water quality in the river. Through the Revitalising Geographe Waterways program, we work with farmers and gardeners to improve their fertiliser management, and our partners have been looking at innovative ways that get quicker results to improve water quality. You can read more about water quality in the Lower Vasse River on the #revitalisinggeographewaterways website: rgw.dwer.wa.gov.au/geographe-waterways/lower-vasse-river/faqs/

POSSUMS SPOTTED! 🔦

Over 20 active Western Ringtail Possums were spotted last night at our Busselton Night Walk with Parks and Wildlife Service, Western Australia. Thanks to everyone who came along!

Remember one of the easiest things you can do to protect this critically endangered species is to keep your cat indoors or in a catio. Find out how at our website: www.geocatch.asn.au/living-with-possums/pets-away-possums-play/

This event was supported by South West Catchments Council (SWCC) through funding from the Australian Government's National Landcare Program.
