The FarmSMART project commenced in 2016 and was conducted up until December 31st 2017.
Working with new, emerging and existing agricultural industries, FarmSmart Project Officers Julian Carroll and Cindy Lucas co-ordinated and delivered a range of workshops that promoted management practices aimed at improving soil health, sustainable production and native vegetation in farming systems.
Farm Smart provided a resource to support new and emerging industries and has provided numerous workshops, field days and training days throughout the project.
