TAS Country : April 26th 2012
Friday, April 27, 2012 Tasmanian Country 7 seed: Best practice views OUTLOOK: The DPIPWE will help farmers at Agfest in decision-making on the way to growing their businesses. tecting agricultural enterprises from invasive species and other threats is only one side of the business equation for farmers. Taking steps to grow your business is equally as important and the department has infor- mation on offer this year to assist farmers in their decision- making. Get the lowdown on the Wealth from Water program which is being trialled in the Meander Valley Irrigation Area and in the Midlands Irrigation Scheme. The program is enabling far- mers to match crops and agri- cultural enterprises with mar- ket requirements and assist them to make informed busi- ness decisions about investing in irrigation. See how DPIPWE is working with the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA) to develop cutting-edge soil and climate modelling to classify areas ac- cording to their suitability for various agricultural enterpr- ises. Talk to the experts from TIA on the factors that influence site suitability and success for vari- ous crops under irrigation. Soils are variable and can require specialised manage- ment to get the best out of them. Different soil types will be on display at the exhibit. Talk to experts about what soil type you have on your farm and ways you can improve productivity. Pick up and take home a soil map of Tasmania. If you are thinking of building a dam, staff at the dam permits display in the DPIPWE tent can explain the streamlined assess- ment process and provide bro- chures and contacts. As part of this display, the Natural Values Atlas will be on show to demonstrate the easy- to-use web interface for access- ing authoritative and compre- hensive natural values infor- mation, particularly in the context of dam permit and water allocation applications. The DPIPWE exhibit display is definitely one not to be missed at Agfest this year. Site 731-733 on Seventh Ave. 2012 2053115-120427 Have you got vacant land? Is it sitting idle costing you money?
