  • Project code: PRO-016420

  • Project stage: Current

  • Project start date: Thursday, November 10, 2022

  • Project completion date: Tuesday, June 6, 2023

  • National Priority: CME-Priority 1-Improving environmental sustainability outcomes


This project develops, demonstrates and promotes innovative water, energy and nutrient technologies, practices and products derived from waste to increase the productivity and profitability of the Australian dairy, pork, chicken and cropping industries whilst increasing resilience to climate change and lowering environmental impacts from reduced farm inputs, nutrient losses and GHG emissions. Selected farms in Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia and Queensland will demonstrate improved water quality and availability, optimisation of biogas for energy production and enhanced fertiliser formulations and soil improvers from manure products. The project builds on the established partnerships of the successful National Agricultural Manure Management Program and will utilise rare or new research techniques including robotic growth accelerator trials, photographic 3D scanning of nutrient supply and growth promoting rhizobacteria and novel solid separation technology.
