Sustainable Land Management

The Queensland Government's component of the Healthy Country project used the FarmFLOW extension framework to assist producers identify and implement practices that may lead to significant fuel and fertiliser savings and production gains while minimising the contribution of sediments and nutrients to waterways.

The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) worked with commercial and semi-commercial producers in the:

  • Logan
  • Lockyer
  • Bremer and
  • Pumicestone catchments.

Landholders were engaged in this project through field days, on-farm trials and demonstrations, training in farm management, assessment of farm sustainability and areas of potential productivity gains and involvement in local grower groups.

This program is no longer active in the above catchments. Please see the resources page for fact sheets, reports, and other extension tools that were developed throughout the project. For further information, please contact:
