Over half of Eyre Peninsula’s land area is farmed and managed by family businesses. A range of issues effect farm profitability and sustainability of the natural resources that support these primary industries. There are a number of ways we can assist land managers and farming groups to improve the region’s farming practices including; developing new technologies, increasing soil health, improving farm profitability and risk management for the long term viability of farming on the Eyre Peninsula.

Sustainable Agriculture and Regional Landcare Steering Committee
The Sustainable Agriculture and Regional Landcare Steering Committee meets annually to provide advice and set the direction for the region’s agricultural programs and is keen to explore innovative examples and ideas that will sustain the natural resource base that our region’s farmers rely on. Membership consists of representatives from LEADA, EPARF, the Advisory Board of Agriculture, eastern Eyre Peninsula farmers and Natural Resources Management staff, who bring strong linkages to farming and natural resource management across the region.
This project is supported by the Eyre Peninsula Natural Resources Management Board, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme.
