Farming Systems South

Full Name: Enterprise Choice and sequencing for profitability and sustainability

Project Lead: The University of Adelaide

Funding Body: GRDC

This project aims to deliver a better understanding of the water-limited potential of farming systems and what drives profitability and sustainability across the Southern Growing Regions. There are 9 sites across South Australia and Victoria. It aims to evaluate broader system performance metrics and test new systems across a 5 year trial.

The trial in the Upper North is located at Appila and aims to assess productivity, soil water and nitrogen dynamics, soil P, pH, OC, Microbiome, disease risk, weed burden, estimated GHG emissions and econometrics for gross margins evaluations.
