Agricultural Knowledge Small Grants

Agricultural Knowledge Small Grants

Agricultural Knowledge Small Grants are now open!

The 2022-23 Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board’s Agricultural Knowledge Small Grants program is now open.

These grants focus on the delivery of knowledge and skill building events to support agricultural and horticultural groups in the region to achieve natural resources management outcomes for improved sustainable agricultural production. Eligible groups are able to apply for funding to undertake agricultural training, and skills and knowledge building activities.

The Agricultural Knowledge Small Grants program is supported by the Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program and the landscape levies.

The priority for this round of Agricultural Knowledge Small Grants is any agricultural training, skills and knowledge building activities that address the following land management/farming issues:

  • managing soil acidification
  • reducing the risk of soil and nutrient loss from wind erosion
  • opportunities for increasing soil organic carbon
  • reducing the risk of soil and nutrient loss from hillslope (water) erosion.

The Agricultural Knowledge Small Grants are available to the following groups:

  • agriculture bureaus
  • farming system groups
  • agricultural industry groups
  • field day committees
  • Landcare and Local Action Planning groups
  • consultant facilitated farmer groups
  • non-government and not for profit organisations working to improve agriculture and native vegetation management.

Groups must be pre-existing and can be formal or informal. State and federal government agencies are ineligible to apply.

Applications close at 5:00 pm ACDT on Friday 15 July 2022.
