Over the last decade there has been a large shift by Mallee farmers to adopt stubble retention systems with no-till in their farming systems... Key factors include: Growers that have been utilising stubble retention and no-till farming systems for many years are facing production and profitability constraints and have general concerns that their farming system as a whole is not performing as well as it should be, relative to more traditional farming systems involving low groundcover and higher erosion risks... Project outcomes will be achieved by employing a range of project activities that combine targeted local extension to address gaps in motivation, attitude and ability with on-farm field trial activities designed in collaboration with local farmers and advisors in mallee (including Victoria, NSW and SA) to fill gaps in local knowledge and understanding...
