Forward Planning landcare projects

2012 season is just around the corner. Plantation and Landcare are already in the process of designing and visiting clients to organise 2012 landcare projects.

This involves site inspections to ensure all projects dovetail into the current paddock regime and overall day to day management of the property.

Trees on broadacre farms need to integrate into day to day management, "the right tree in the wrong place is a weed".

Salinity is still one of biggest challengers, but trying to make salinity is even bigger challenge. Integrating fodder into the mix helps provide a enormous feed resource for those lean years or as a supplement feed for stock.

Grants are available to help farmers in certain areas across WA and farmers and landholders need to contact me to tap into this funding
