REfreshed Perspectives: 8.00am - 12pm

A practical approach to managing change in agricultural systems with Terry McCosker OAM.

This session is for anyone wanting to get off the treadmill of high fertilizer and chemical costs. Featuring a panel of six local farmers, the session will look at soil health principles. You will hear stories of success and learning from some of WA’s most innovative broadacre farmers.

The session will focus on transition to improving soil, business and farmer health. It will focus on improving soil health, maintaining yield and increasing profit and discussing the steps we can take to rebuild these elements with lower chemicals and synthetics. We do not have all the answers, but we know the starting points.

In this session we will look at:

•            Six straightforward soil health principles.

•            We will look into the easy wins.

•            We will focus on avoiding the “Valley of Death”

•            We will hear from successful farmers who are in transition.

•            We will hear of their success and learning experiences.

REhydrate the Landscape with the

Mulloon Institute: 1pm - 3.25pm

The Mulloon Institute will be at the Muresk Institute delivering a practical, capacity building workshop on landscape rehydration that takes farmers through tools and techniques to take back to their properties. Come away better able to read landscapes and being able to identify current and historical water flows. Learn to see where there are imbalances that may be leading to lost opportunities for water capture, erosion and a host of other hydration threats and opportunities.

Information on how to maximise ‘bang for buck’ in salinity mitigation will be given. This will include deciding on areas of greatest priority for; planting, earthworks, and exclusion fencing to combat salinity issues. Attend our event and come away with an introduction to the skills needed to make these kinds of decisions. Learn to think in terms of a rehydration plan; what that might look like and how to prioritise implementation strategies.

The workshop includes a field trip on the Muresk Institute Farm and an introduction to Mulloon’s “Landscape Rehydration Trial & Demonstration in the Wheatbelt of WA” project, which is supported by funding from the Western Australian Government’s State NRM Program. 

Filed Trip around Muresk: 3.35pm - 5.05pm

Participants will be shown landscape indicators and given reasoning behind selected various management tools that will be used to address various imbalances and capitalise on opportunities.
