Over the next few months 65 farmers in the Liebe area will be surveyed on their use of different farm practices such as deep ripping, soil testing and green manuring.
This survey is similar to one conducted in 2007 and 2009 and will give the Liebe group a valuable insight into how adoption trends change over time. For Summary of previous survey click here
All three surveys’ (known within the group as technical audits) are funded by the Grain Research & Development Corporation and uses the same farming families which are made up of 50 members and 15 non members.
Results should be available by September 2012.
