Initial base line data was gathered at the commencement of the project. Uptake of recommendations implemented in line with farm management plans. Some recommendations were undertaken outside of the initial time frame. Benefits to the three farms can be seen within the case studies.
Three more pilot farms are currently being assessed in northern Queensland (Cairns, Townsville, Mackay) . Due to variations in climate, soils and species.
