Land management

Sustainable land management is important in the SA Arid Lands Region. Managing the environment in a way that is sustainable ensures productivity now and into the future.

A range of issues affect the productivity and sustainability of natural resources that underpin the region's pastoral enterprises.

There are a number of ways we can assist land managers and producer groups through providing advice, specialised technical support, information sharing and assistance.

All services are to assist land managers continuously improve their sustainability and profitability including soil conservation and grazing management, improving enterprise profitability and risk management, developing new technologies and diversification, all of which support long-term viability across the region.

AgTech funding available

If you are planning to install new agriculture technology on your property, the SA Arid Lands Landscape Board has an exciting new project to support you.

The board is working with Farmers2Founders and the South Australian Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub to support the adoption of Agtech across the Pastoral region through a new TekFarm project.

We’ll work closely with landholders to increase drought resilience by identifying potential Agtech solutions that resolve on-property challenges and optimise profitability and productivity through the enhancement of soil health, land condition and water management.

The purchase cost of the new tech will be funded through a co-contribution model where costs will be evenly shared by yourself, project funds and the Agtech supplier. There are limited places available for interested properties to be involved.

If you would like to know more about this project, please contact Sarah Voumard on 0438 846 373.

This project received funding from the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund.
