Limestone Coast projects help adapt to changing climate

Improving soil health, carbon, farm diversification and water efficiency are just a taste of the project topics which have been successful in receiving funding through Round 1 of the Limestone Coast Landscape Board’s Adaptive Agriculture Grants 2022/23. 

Six projects in all gained funding in Round 1, with applications representing a diverse range of agricultural industries aiming to build knowledge and skills that support land management decisions and practices that build enterprise resilience and sustainability in a changing climate. 

The Limestone Coast Landscape Board tteam leader James Hall said the diversity of projects was terrific and bodes well for a proactive approach by primary production enterprises to adjusting farm practices.

“We are pleased to be able to offer Adaptive Agriculture grants that encourage proactive innovations and adaptations by our regional farming community,” he said.

“Predictions of a drier climate with extreme weather events means that we must change how we farm and adopt new practices to remain productive and viable.”
