Project Description: This project will evaluate the potential for improvements to soil and waterway health, ecological resilience and increased profitability when using multi-species cover crops and perennial pastures accompanied by a program of intensive planned grazing in a livestock-based farming system in Central Victoria. The research conducted with partners Central Victorian Regenerative Farmers, Learmonth Foundations, Paraway Pastoral Company Limited and the University of Melbourne will determine whether there is a measurable improvement in soil health indicators by implementation of these regenerative practices compared with conventional pasture establishment, management and grazing practices.
