Sustainable Agriculture

70 per cent of the land in the NAR is dedicated to farming

Agriculture accounts for over a third of the economy in the Northern Agricultural Region (NAR). With 70 per cent of the land in the NAR dedicated to farming, sustainability of this sector means sustainability of the region.

While agricultural land is productive it’s also under immense environmental stress. Wind erosion, soil degradation, salinity and climate change are some of the many pressures the environment faces.

NACC’s Sustainable Agriculture Program is dedicated to helping farmer’s tackle environmental issues and ensure the sustainability of their natural resources.

The NACC team provides farmers with support, including funding opportunities, capacity building, workshop and events, to encourage the adoption of NRM practices that support the health of the environment and improve productivity and farm income.

The Sustainable Agriculture team are on-ground with farmers helping them to achieve the best future for the local environment and their individual farms.
