Land monitoring and evaluation
Landscapes in the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges (AMLR) region support a range of activities that underpin environmental health, economic productivity and social well being. Primary production in the region is valued at approximately $876 million per annum at the farm gate.
To track our progress toward finding a balance between our collective need for resources and the needs of our environment, Natural Resources AMLR monitors:
- land condition
- soil condition
- agricultural production.
Reporting on progress
In line with the AMLR Natural Resources Management Plan, there are two long-term targets for the condition of land in the region:
- maintain or increase the productive capacity of agriculture
- improve land condition for primary production by 15 per cent.
How we are progressing toward our goals is captured in regional report cards.
