Beach Energy have contributed to the Climate Resilient Farms project. Mainly funded by the Future Drought Fund, this project continues trials on 20 farms and extends research and innovation to 10 more farms. The project involves testing and adapting practices to suit the environments and management regimes on a range of farm types, focusing on building soil carbon as a key strategy for climate resilience, but also including other measures for microclimate modification. Innovations include several new tillage systems, diverse multispecies cover crops adapted to particular seasons, soil additives including compost and biocarbons, strategic planting of shelter belts, livestock fodder supplements and effluent treatment methods. Two universities are engaged with the research components, and the resultant pool of knowledge will form a basis for future farm practices in the region.
