Australia’s Farming Future
DAFF-left3Australia’s Farming Future (AFF) encourages the development of innovative research and on-farm demonstrations. Large scale collaborative projects have commenced that involve a range of Australian organisations such as research providers, industry groups, universities and state governments. Approximately $40 million worth of projects are now underway in Australia on climate change adaptation research to develop better management practices, strategies and technologies. These projects complement other areas of research under AFF on emissions reduction and soil carbon. The research will improve opportunities for primary producers to respond to climate change and manage emissions while improving productivity.
