Riverine Plains

Riverine Plains Inc is a not for profit, farming systems research and extension organisation that services cropping and mixed farmers in north east Victoria and southern NSW.   

We have a membership base of over 315 farming families spread across a wide geographical area.  Our members farm as far north as Lockhart and Henty in NSW and as far south as Euroa and Shepparton in Victoria.  The majority of our members are dryland farmers though a number also have access to irrigation.

Aims:

The project seeks to:

  • investigate, demonstrate and extend cultural practices that will assist growers to adopt no-till stubble retention (NTSR) in medium and higher-rainfall environments;
  • build on findings from the previous Riverine Plains Inc. Water Use Efficiency (WUE) project; and
  • extend the fr… read more
