A familiar face has joined the ABGC Reef Extension Team. Local Soil Conservation expert Darryl Evans will be working with ABGC over the next couple of months to help growers reduce the amount of soil leaving their farm. North Queensland growers are invited to take advantage of Darryl’s expertise and book him in for a free* farm visit to get advice about sediment management for their farms. Darryl can assist with whole farm planning, including:
· Contour layouts and row direction
· Headlands and roadways
· Waterway location and design
For further information or to book a time with Darryl, please call Dale Bennett at ABGC on (07) 4015 2797 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
*To qualify for a free on-farm visit, growers must have completed or renewed their Environmental BMP within the last twelve months. If you wish to complete or renew your BMP please contact Robert Mayers at ABGC on 07 4015 2797. This extension activity is possible through the Reef Alliance and the Reef Trust III project.
The Reef Alliance Program is a partnership between agricultural industry, regional NRM bodies and facilitated by the Queensland Farmers Federation (QFF), with a common goal of securing the future health of the Great Barrier Reef. The Reef Alliance Program is funded by the Australian Government and delivered through the Reef Trust.
