Improving Farming Systems efficiency in Southern NSW

Project Funder: Grains Research & Development Corporation (GRDC)

Project Lead Organisation/Researcher: CSIRO, NSW DPI

Project Durations: 2021-2024

Project Locations: Southern NSW – Condobolin, Greenethorpe, Wagga Wagga, Urana

Description and background

This project aims to improve whole farm profitability by identifying the agronomic factors that drive profit, and adopting management practices that optimise returns. By employing a farming systems approach, the implications of strategic options (crop choice, time of sowing, fertiliser requirements) and tactical decisions (grazing, N topdressing) that a grower might make on-farm will be evaluated across the crop sequence.

CWFS has been engaged to facilitate the grower communications for the GRDC Farming Systems project in the NSW Central West region to ensure growers are aware of project activities and key outcomes.
