The Soils Co-operative Research Centre (CRC) for High Performance Soils) was formed in 2017 to bridge a gap between soil scientists and farmers, and to ensure that soil performance is increased, both in the short term and long term.
Riverine Plains Inc is an associate within the CRC and is part of many projects, ranging from social research to field trials, with our involvement helping to guide projects and ensure they have a real world application.
As part of Program 1 – Investing in high performance soils, the Understanding adoptability of techniques and practices for improved soil management project will use research methods, decision modelling, surveys, case studies and bio-economic modelling to deliver tools and resources to support policy-makers, financiers, suppliers and farmers in adopting and using incentives.
The first meeting of the Understanding adoptability of techniques and practices for improved soil management project followed the Riverine Plains Inc In-season Update, and was led by Catherine Allan. The meeting provided farmers with the opportunity to discuss and prioritise their soils issues, the adoption of new practices as well as information sources. Additional discussions will be held over the project term.
