Crops, trends, transects

Dec 01, 2020


 
Bronwyn Bant

Wimmera CMA is collating spring 2020 data for the northern and southern Wimmera cropland management transects. It is part of our ongoing work with Agriculture Victoria to develop information for our region on land management trends stretching all the way back to 1996.

This helps with planning future research and ag programs to support Wimmera farmers. This year Wimmera CMA staff saw crops with high yield potential which are now being harvested, plus green pastures and high levels of hay production.

Bronwyn Bant, who started as the Regional Agricultural Landcare Facilitor earlier this year, has been supporting sustainable ag partners for the cropland management project by helping collect data across about 1000km of the Wimmera.

We will have results available soon.
