“The future of Aussie agriculture relies on sustainable farming and land management practices,” said Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, David Littleproud.
“Our farmers are looking for new practices and tools to stay sustainable and profitable.
These grants support new projects to improve Aussie soil, biodiversity and vegetation.
“They will also help support water security and promote climate-smart farming. Ultimately, this leads to more profitable agriculture, fishing and forestry industries. I know there are exceptional ideas out there and these grants can make them a reality.
“The first round of funding was highly competitive, attracting over 800 applications. I strongly encourage those who missed out in Round one to apply again,” said David.
