Drought-proof your Farm

Using affordable eco-logical techniques

These days it doesn’t matter where we farm - at times we don’t get enough rain.

We need to make our farms more resilient to drought.

To make the most of the water we have available, extend our growing season by keeping soil moist well into dry times, and save money on feed for livestock when growing gets tough.

What is the solution?

Usually, we respond by digging dams and bores, putting in new water points. We de-stock, bring in rotational grazing practices, grow drought-resistant crops, use mulch and water-smart irrigation technology.

These help, but there is a remarkably simple and cost-effective approach that tends to get overlooked.

That gets the rain measured in our rain gauge infiltrating and stored in our soil rather than running off!

The approach is eco-logical, and:

  • Cost-effective to implement right across your farm
  • Improves your soil – helping to bring back the free ecological services functioning soil ecosystems provide
  • Profitable - yields improve, and you gain opportunities to develop new income streams!

With this Handbook, you’ll learn how to use this eco-logical approach, and look at how water harvesting solutions like swales, natural sequence farming and keyline can help you.
