An eight-year project by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development to improve fertiliser use on-farm and deliver environmental benefits has been recognised as meeting national industry standards.
The Whole Farm Nutrient Mapping project, which has soil tested and nutrient mapped more than 600 farms from Albany to Gingin, has been assessed as meeting Fertcare® standards.
Funding for the Fertcare® assessment was provided by the Regional Estuaries Initiative (REI) to demonstrate the process was meeting industry standards.
The REI team is delighted that this recognition supports the successful implementation of our Sustainable Agriculture program.
