The Expression of Interest period for seedlings/seed for the 2011 planting season has now closed. Thank you for your interest.

*October Update*

Natural Resource Management Officers across the North Eastern and Southern Wheatbelt have been undertaking post-planting surveys with landholders who participated in the ‘Perennial farming systems targeting wind erosion within the North Eastern and Southern Wheatbelt regions of WA’ Project.

The Project offered landholders Saltbush, Oil Mallees, Brushwood, Casuarina obesa, Sandalwood host seedlings and perennial pastures to reduce soil loss through wind erosion. Over 320,000 seedlings and 20 kg of perennial pasture seed were offered to 65 successful Project applicants including 111, 000 Oil Mallee and 95,000 saltbush seedlings.
