We have led development of state level soils strategies, as well as regional and local strategies. We have worked closely with communities and farmers to create local action plans for protecting and improving soil health.
Our mix of farming and environmental knowledge means that we can see how soil and land management is critical to both areas. We have experience working with communities, particularly farming communities, on soil health issues. We understand the passions and enthusiasm that are often ignited by discussions about soil conservation and land management.
Our advice can be specific to a local paddock or across an entire catchment or region. Our approach is evidence based decision-making. We collect relevant data, develop a practical analysis framework for the data, and then provide clear management decisions with financial analysis. This provides confidence that the desired soil management outcome will be achieved.
In recent years, we have worked closely with farmers and regional catchment authorities to clarify the opportunities that soil carbon presents. This has included bringing both technical and policy rigor to these discussions to ensure that landholders understand carbon markets and opportunities for increasing soil carbon, and set realistic expectations from these market opportunities.
