Optimising chemical use on farm

WHAT
Provision of skills and knowledge to growers to help them optimise their nutrient management for soil health, water quality, community health and agricultural protection. Provision of skills and knowledge to growers to help them optimise their herbicide/pesticide management for soil health, water quality, community health and agricultural protection. We will use peer mentoring, decision support tools and support for innovation.

WHY
• Farm financial viability is one of the key controlling variables in the Regional Strategy, and headlines in the Vision – chemicals are a large part of the budget
• NLP2 recognises that standards to achieve access to markets are likely to change significantly and we want to prepare farmers to adapt
• Soils productivity is one of the big resources issue for the Wheatbelt, with soil acidity, compaction and declining organic carbon issues

WHY IT IS GREAT
It is a touchy issue, but just quietly – everyone is asking for it

We should be using little if not any chemicals on our land/food, ever.
