Season 2 | Episode 10: Mallee Farming AgVic Series | Tackling Mallee Wind Erosion with Rachel Coombes

October 1, 2020 - 9:33 am

Agriculture Victoria with support from the Mallee Catchment Management Authority (CMA), is monitoring wind erosion risk in the Victorian Mallee by assessing groundcover and land management throughout the year.  This will help build a picture as to how the region is maintaining ground cover and reducing the effects of wind erosion.

Groundcover data is obtained through remote sensing (satellite imagery) technology and roadside surveys.  This combines new technology and is reinforced by existing tried and true methods.  Land Management Development Officer with Agriculture Victoria, Rachel Coombes, talks about the project and the results from the 2019 growing season in this podcast.

This project is supported by the Mallee Catchment Management Authority, though funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
