Beyond soil testing.
Ten case study farmers were supported, as part of the Fertiliser Best Practice project from 2017 to 2019, to change their fertiliser practices following whole-farm soil testing of their property.
These farmers received additional soil and tissue testing, as well as one-on-one advice from a Fertcare Accredited Agronomist, which included the development of an annual fertiliser plan. They have shared their stories of change to support other farmers and practitioners working with the farming sector.
The project was delivered in partnership with the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development and the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation, and is part of the Revitalising Geographe Waterways program.
