SA01SEQ-01 & SA05SEQ-01: Site Selection Layout and Drainage & Management of Erosion and Sedimentation


Research Site / Demonstration Number: SA01SEQ-01 and SA05SEQ-01
Grower Collaborator: Pinata Farms – Wamuran
Location 1: Pates Road, Wamuran
Initiation Date: February 2019


OUTLINE

To evaluate:

  • the benefits of farm planning to better identify surface water flow to reduce / mitigate soil erosion and
  • effectiveness of surface stabilisation practices on soil erosion with moderate to high erodible soils.

OBJECTIVES

  1. Phase 1: Improve farm planning practises to identify and better implement manage strategies which mitigate surface water run-off.
  2. Phase 2: To improve the methodologies of implementing surface stabilisation practices to better manage soil erosion.
    • living surface covers (living mulch)
    • synthetic surface covers (geo polymers)
  3. To understand the impact of erosion on mechanically controlled / isolated compaction.
  4. To reduce in-field soil erosion in highly erodible soil types.
  5. To undertake a cost analysis of implementing soil erosion practices.
