Description:

There are pressures on Australia’s natural resources that can limit the viability and productivity of Australia’s farming, fishery, aquaculture and forestry industries. These industries are looking to trial and implement new and innovative technologies and tools which will reduce these pressures while increasing their productivity and profitability.

In response to these needs the Australian Government established the Smart Farms Small Grants program under the Smart Farms initiative, an agriculture component of the National Landcare Program (NLP).

Grants will be available to support local on-ground projects across Australia that increase the knowledge and capacity of farmers and fishers and facilitate the adoption of tools, technologies and improved land management practices to effectively, sustainably and productively manage Australia’s natural resources and adapt to significant changes in climate, weather and markets.
