Round 6 of NACC’s Sustainable Agriculture Innovative Farming Demonstration grants has come to an end with NACC looking forward to establishing more demonstration sites in the region.
Farming demonstration sites promote sustainable farm practices and land management in the Northern Agricultural Region (NAR). Farming demonstrations have been widely popular with 43 demonstrations being funded through Rounds 1 to 5 of the project.
NACC has teamed up with the local community to encourage long term management of natural resources to ensure sustainability for future farming generations.
Through the project, NACC aims to increase landholders participation in farm demonstration sites and better equip them for potential, future agricultural and resource challenges in the NAR.
This project helps establish farming demonstrations that aim to give landholders funding so that they can trial alternative land practices for things such as grazing, cropping and horticulture to increase sustainablility in a changing climate, says NACC’s Carbon Farming Coordinator, Sarah Jeffery.

This project is supported by the Northern Agricultural Catchments Council through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme.
