Farmer groups have been formed across the areas of Bothwell, Jericho, Oatlands, Tunbridge, Campbelltown and Hagley.
Rigorous benchmarking will be used to support farmer groups to set productivity goals for yields and inputs for both cropping and pasture-based farming systems.
Farmer groups will set goals for improving irrigation management,and develop and share strategies for meeting these goals across their region.
By sharing information on cropping and investment decisions with each other, farmers will improve the prosperity of their regions.
View the videos below to hear about the value of the program for the farmers.
