Summary

The broader project will assist flood affected landholders identified through SEQC, Council and Regional industry groups to return to production and improve the natural resilience of the waterways.

This project will help restore soil fertility as a result of topsoil loss during the floods at Glenore Grove. The landholder will spread and incorporate approximately 500 cubic metres of compost stockpiled from dairy operations over 1ha of paddock that has suffered the loss of the top 30cm of soil.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve soil fertility and productivity on a flood affected dairy farm.
