Waging war on weeds an ongoing battle

Weeds are a huge cost to grazing businesses . They put productivity , the environment , and livelihoods under pressure . LDC has worked with landholders and land managers across the BBB to tackle the problem .

Non-graziers managing land also part of LDC

LDC aims to involve all land managers , including councils , mines , utilities and government departments , to work together and learn from each other to help achieve better long-term land management in the BBB .

It ’ s all about the health of the soil

The release of the National Soil Strategy in May this year provides a rallying call for all Australians with an interest in the management of one of our greatest resources - our soil . Soil health has been a cornerstone of the LDC ’ s Grazier Support program . Revisit our soil health video series presented by soil expert David Hardwick .
