The Mallee Seeps project is managed and coordinated by Mallee Sustainable Farming, with generous financial support provided through the National Landcare program, the Grains Research and Development Corporation and the Murray Darling Basin NRM Board through the project “A holistic approach to seep management for preventing land degradation in the landscape”. Local delivery partners include the CSIRO, University of Adelaide, Insight Agricultural Extension, AgriVision, Mallee CMA, and Coorong Tatiara LAP and not LPA.
Aims of the Mallee Seeps project are to help farmers identify and address this serious threat, through identifying how such seeps sites can be best managed and remediated through practical and innovative management practices arising from on-farm research and on-farm trials and demonstrations. Farmers from across the Mallee are invited to participate in this important project, share their experiences and to assist in developing practical solutions.
We invite you to explore information provided on the MSF web site where we hope you will find valuable information that you can use as a basis of making informed decisions in relation to the management of seeps as well as dryland salinity. Delayed action for any period of time can lead to valuable farm land becoming unproductive, with the worst case scenario being the loss of land for farming altogether.
Act now – we are here to support you in addressing this important challenge.
