This project aimed to build on the knowledge of sustainable farming practices to the next generation of Mallee farmers, to enable them to better manage their agricultural business. Young farmers (18-40 yrs) in the Mallee regions have expressed a need for information on how to use new farming applications with the ever increasing field of new technology applications and the need for high speed information and understanding of carbon farming practices. The project ran workshops alongside field days at Kyalite, Merbein and a workshop at Nangiloc for sustainable farming practices and effective management decisions to maintain economically viable and environmentally sustainable farming practices.
