Welcome to MSF

We are a farmer driven organisation delivering research, development and extension. 

ABOUT MSF

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.

The MSF Advantage

MSF operates to ensure that the vital research development and extension that will underpin the future productivity and sustainability of farming in the low rainfall Mallee continues.

Our partnership approach facilitates the application of key research and development activities within the region. This brings together national, regional and local research and development capabilities to create an impact far greater than if we operated independently.

The scientific rigour of this program is something that MSF is very proud of and is critical for providing a sound basis for the MSF extension program.
