The MSF story – farmers
This is a story of a proudly farmer led group working on behalf of and in conjunction with fellow Mallee farmers. MSF aims to boost agricultural productivity and profit and support farmers in the tristate Mallee region by conducting research development and extension in the latest farming innovations to meet local and specific farm business solutions.
The Mallee – the 350 mm rainfall cropping region of New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia – was a place once known for heat and dust. These days that dust now remains safely locked into productive paddocks, thanks in large measure to MSF’s work in advancing, proving and promoting the advantages of improved farming systems, starting with, but not limited to, adoption of no till improving soil quality and moisture retention.
Our work brings together researchers, advisers and local Mallee farmers. Through on-farm research projects, trials, information sharing and education programs, we continue to work together to build knowledge and quite literally change the local landscape and the face of farming in the Mallee.
