Cutting-edge technology to improve water quality and help farmers

Last Updated: 26 Jun, 2019

Scientists from across Australia will use state-of-the-art technology over the next four years to work with grazing farmers in Western Australia to reduce nutrient loss off farm and improve water quality in local waterways and estuaries.

More than $5.5 million has been provided by the State and Federal governments for Smart Farming Fertiliser trials to improve the health of waterways and estuaries by reducing fertiliser run-off, which in turn will help increase farm productivity and profitability.
