Landholders urged to support shelterbelt survey

The Limestone Coast Landscape Board (LC Landscape Board) are encouraging landholders with shelterbelts on their property to support a survey on the effects of shelterbelts on soil health and primary production.

The survey results will be used to inform future activities supported by the LC Landscape Board including upcoming workshops and demonstration days for the region.

Ehsan Sayad, Soil Extension Officer for the Limestone Coast Landscape Board said, “Shelterbelts can improve soil health on farms, and assist with soil erosion and on farm productivity, making it a key priority for landholders.”

“It is important we collect this information from landholders in our region to find out where we can offer relevant support.

“Soil health is integral to our work with the community, there has been some fantastic revegetation learning and work completed in recent years with positive impacts on primary production and soil health across the Limestone Coast,” he said.
