SOIL DEGRADATION & REMEDIATION

Across the Fenceline / Soil Moisture Probes
Real-time soil water measurements for improved crop management

What began as a joint initiative between HMLG, CSIRO and GRDC continues to provides local growers with real-time plant-available water measurements from soil moisture probes installed across the Harden district.

Subsoil Acidity
Taking Action on Subsoil Acidity in Harden Shire

Alternative fertilisers for improved native pasture production in the NSW Southern Tablelands

During sustained periods of drought, landholders have come to appreciate the quality and persistence of native grasses under stress compared to non-native pasture species.  

Cereal Stubble Management
Alternative Strategies for Managing Cereal Stubble

HMLG led a long-term study to investigate improved methods of cereal stubble management. This project formed part of a larger study of stubble management in the Murrumbidgee Catchment.

Community Stream Monitoring Program
Investigating sources of salt in the Jugiong Creek Catchment

HMLG together with the Bureau of Rural Sciences (BRS) developed a project to assess landscape salt-stores in the Jugiong Creek Catchment.

Pasture Management
Getting to the root cause of subclover decline in NSW

Local farmers had observed that pasture legumes were not thriving in NSW pastures like they used to. HMLG together with six other landcare groups, designed and implemented a study to investigate the issue.
