Project background

This project will develop the capacity of young farmers (less than 10 years’ experience) in the Northern Agricultural Region of Western Australia and provide them with the skills and confidence to trial and share best practice methods for increased soil productivity in their farming businesses. The project will monitor and evaluate ten paddock scale demonstrations with ten young farmers and provide them with the skills to evaluate and share innovative approaches to soil management.

A modern peer learning framework will be developed to enable increased farmer to farmer learning. The facilitation of an online peer network will provide a trusted environment for farmers to share experiences and access in-season decision making support through discussion and engagement with peers. Findings and in-season analysis from the demonstration sites will be shared in real-time via this network and video case studies will be developed with each of the ten farmers to share their experiences with the broader farming community.
