About Mallee
Sustainable Farming

Mallee Sustainable Farming (MSF) brings farmers and researchers together to build more efficient, profitable and sustainable farming businesses in the low-rainfall Mallee region across New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.

In collaboration with Australia’s best agricultural and scientific organisations we’re delivering industry leading research into no-till systems, soil management, crop rotations and nutrition, soil microbiology, environmental sustainability and agronomy that’s changing the face of farming in the Mallee.

Our farmers access the latest developments in sustainable farming methods that are tested on farms in their region and proven to increase productivity, sustainability and profitability.

Virtual Field Days

Our virtual field days and 360 video features are a way for farmers to gain valuable insights into extension outcomes and demonstration activities, without the hours of travel to various Mallee sites.

We could see the benefits almost straight away. The difference was especially noticeable in dry years – we were getting better yields than we would have from conventional.

Every year MSF produces some amazing results in research trials and extension across the Mallee grain growing regions … Most importantly, MSF is led by farmers and for farmers so the research trials that are done are relevant to farming operations in the region.

@ryan_milgate @Nel_farms This from @BCG trial run by @cjtaylor_bcg in 2019. Assume southern mallee slightly warmer than Kalkee and would start flower late July (Cam would know difference between sites). That wouldn’t be ridiculous but with some frost and upper canopy blackleg risk

Yesterday saw the first session of Next Gen Breakthrough! It may look a little different than first planned, but it’s great to connect businesses from Port Kenny through to Keith.

Interested in taking part? Don't worry! We're still taking EOI's, so get in touch to be involved!

Award for Excellence

The Award has been created to remember and celebrate the significant contributions made by the late David Roget. The Award acknowledges his enduring legacy and contribution to sustainable agriculture. David was a principal research scientist with CSIRO at the Waite campus, Adelaide, before he retired in 2005 and will be remembered for taking research out of the laboratory and into the paddock. He was instrumental in developing and promoting the concept of farming systems research by bringing together multiple disciplines and grower input, particularly through the Mallee Sustainable Farming Project.
