CHRRUP Preparing for drought in the Desert Uplands Bioregion

Testing low-cost, scalable practices that offer possible solutions to increase farm income and drought preparedness.

This project will demonstrate that relatively low-cost interventions and changes in grazing practices can rehydrate grazing landscapes, improve soil, water, and biodiversity assets, and remediate existing erosion.

Five demonstration properties will participate in the design, implementation, and evaluation of on ground works and grazing practices with recognized industry experts. These properties will be monitored, case studies developed, and field days/education events held to share the outcomes and benefits across a wider network of graziers.

This Activity is funded through the Future Drought Fund (FDF) Drought Resilient Soils and landscapes (DRSL) Grants Program.
