Natural Resources SA Murray-Darling Basin (SAMDB) is seeking graziers interested in being involved in the Marginal to Mainstream project, to attend a workshop at Keyneton on November 27.

The project will be conducted in grazing country in the SAMDB region with the aims of:

  1. Demonstrating feasible and repeatable methods of grazing and grassy understorey management.
  2. Assisting the farming community to implement positive change.
  3. Improving productivity and the natural resource base.
  4. Increasing soil stability, pastoral resilience and biodiversity.

The workshop will feature discussion on the constraints in maintaining and/or improving grasses (native or introduced pastures) on grazing properties within the region, and collectively decide:

  1. What is the biggest constraint to grassland management in the region (that can be addressed within the scope of the project)?
  2. What management tools could be implemented in the area? The workshop facilitators will present the options available, and provide advice on each option.
  3. Whose property/properties the demonstration sites will be set-up on.
  4. Brainstorm the demonstration site design and monitoring program.
