Soil PET (People, Education and Technology) Pilot Project 

26-08-2022 15:49

The Soil PET (People, Education and Technology) Pilot Project is an innovative pilot to test mechanisms of engagement and information transfer. The project uses the on-ground connectivity of Landcare networks to stimulate change in the management of landscapes in Central West NSW.

Healthy soil is the foundation of productive, sustainable agriculture. Managing for soil health allows producers to work with the land against impacts such as erosion, reduced water infiltration and/or nutrient cycling. This Smart Farms Small Grants project is using new soil testing technology to fill gaps in soil science and improve landholder understanding of soil health best management practices through localised field day events. In this presentation, drawing on the Soils PET Pilot Project, presenters highlight how engagement and information transfer has helped to increase capacity of land managers to improve soil management and adopt best practice sustainable agriculture.

Presenters: Stefanie Woodgate, Phoebe Gulliver and Teagan Lawrence.
