The Mallee Dryland Sustainable Agriculture Strategy 2017-23 is now available.  Developed in collaboration with regional delivery partners, this Strategy provides a regional planning document to guide future investment into the Victorian Mallee dryland agricultural landscape.

The Mallee Dryland Sustainable Agriculture Strategy represents the efforts of regional delivery partners to establish a co-ordinated and collaborative planning framework which builds on past achievements to increase productivity outcomes, improve on-farm resilience, and enhance collaboration between stakeholders.  The Strategy draws primarily on the experiences and expertise of local providers of dryland agricultural programs from Agriculture Victoria, Birchip Cropping Group, Mallee Catchment Management Authority, and Mallee Sustainable Farming.  Input from broader industry and community representatives also ensures that the priorities and expectations of key stakeholders have been captured.

Collectively, this partnership has set the following aims for the Strategy:

  • To strengthen sustainable agriculture in the region over the next six years through strategic and practical measures;
  • To provide a regionally coordinated approach towards sustainable agriculture that enhances and builds relationships between the region’s service providers, producers, manufacturers and consumers; and,
  • To support future investment and additional resources to achieve sustainable agriculture in the region.
  • To achieve these aims, 15 individual strategic actions or priorities for future effort are identified under four themes:  Soil health and productive capacity; Farm business risk, viability and resilience; Pests, disease and weeds; and, Regional infrastructure and capacity.
