Dairying for Tomorrow- A practical natural resource management (NRM) program to secure the future of Australia’s dairy farms.
Dairying for Tomorrow supports dairy farmers to increase their farm productivity while at the same time reducing their environmental footprint by enabling activities such as precision application of fertiliser and effluent (Fert$mart), effective irrigation (Smarter Irrigation for Profit), energy efficiency and the potential for renewables, maintaining and enhancing farm biodiversity (Biodiversity Action Plan).
Advice on how to reduce energy use on farm. Includes fact sheets and advice on renewable energy.
This project aims to increase the effectiveness of irrigation delivery and scheduling through application of new technologies and improved management. It includes 10 farmer managed optimised dairy irrigation sites across five states.
• Better understanding of soil nitrogen mineralisation factors
• Enhanced Efficiency Fertilisers (EEFs)
• Testing and developing industry N Best Management Practices (BMPs)
