Majority of growers in the port zones will have access to agronomy packages for pulse/legumes and to whole farm modelling tools for their own farms to determine if particular legumes are profitable in their system. Target of 20% of the growers will be actively using these tools to access the risks and rewards in growing a legume for a break crop on their property by 2021.
Develop 3 legume (crop) demonstration sites on a range of soil types (and inlcude shallow clay soils, heavy soils and duplex soil types) per port zone (Kwinana East, Kwinana West and Geraldton)
Deliver 3 Crop Sequence workshops per port zone
Extend agronomy packages for pulse/legumes that fit for growers in each port zone.
