Initiation of a project with the client to integrate improved, more resilient grazing management practices grazing practices with carbon mitigation activities on buffer land to achieve an overall improved productivity, enhance landscape resilience and biodiversity through improved connectivity, and delivering tangible benefits to rural landholders and communities by providing an example of enhanced land management practices. The wider strategic basis of this project aims to create value for the company rather than simply minimise risk.
Site investigation, land capability evaluation, farm planning and design of integration approach to improved grazing management with carbon offsets and biodiversity outcomes.
Benefit to Client:
The project produced a farm plan design that will allow the client to improve productive utilisation of their land asset for cattle production, sequester carbon to reduce liabilities, and improve biodiversity by improving connectivity of native vegetation.
