The WA component of Grain & Graze 2 will target locally relevant issues with the longer-term goal of a significant demonstrable increase in water use efficiency (WUE) in mixed crop/livestock systems that improves whole-farm profitability, whole-farm sustainability, and whole farm ground cover, by accelerating the adoption of specific key management practices and technologies... The goal is directly addressed by the four intermediate outcomes of the project, which include: - Improved management of whole-farm biomass - Improved matching of land use..... Most Western Australian farmers have now been exposed to the concept of grazing crops, but many are reluctant to 'put the stock in' for fear of receiving a grain yield penalty...
