The Federal Government is investing more than $5 million nation-wide to help landholders with new skills and knowledge to improve sustainability.
Member for Barker Tony Pasin said 113 projects nationally will receive grants of up to $50,000 from the third round of the Smart Farms Small Grants program.
“Our farmers and landholders are some of the best custodians of our land and have a long history of early adoption of innovation,” Mr Pasin said.
“They have always looked after the land and we are giving them a helping hand through this grants program to adopt best practice natural resource management methods.
“These are projects happening throughout the country and are about improving the resilience and productive capacity of farms and landscapes.”
Mr Pasin said four projects in Barker would share in almost $200,000 of projects across the electorate.
