Sus Ag Discussion Group – Drought Resilience with Graham Sheppard
November 27, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
All farmers are invited to a drought resilience workshop with Graham Sheppard at the Outtrim Hall 1025 Outtrim-Leongatha Rd. To reduce the effect of a drought and increase the resistance of a pastoral farm to drought conditions, there are 18 key measures that farmers can address to increase the drought resistance of their farm.
These key factors provide a Drought Resistance Index (DRI) of whether a field is likely to have a high, moderate or low resistance to dry conditions.
With the onset of an El-Nino and the potential for the development of a significant soil moisture deficit, it is timely for farmers to start to address those issues that can make their farms more tolerant of drought conditions.
