Progress continues on our revegetation project undertaken for the Australian Farmlands Fund. Since the direct seeding of the 110ha site back in May, the first signs of germination are already evident.
With great support from Woka Walla (Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation) and the Goulburn Broken CMA, the project has been the beneficiary of 200 hand-planted Silver Banksia trees as well as strategic spot weed control.
Good early season rain and plenty of recent sunshine have been conducive to the emergence of the first tiny Acacia germinants. This is the first of many anticipated germination events, with the alignment of favourable seasonal conditions over the coming years.
Plenty of attention to controlling a key seedling predator, Red Legged Earth Mite, has occurred across the planting area in July.
We wait in excited anticipation for the forecast spring rains and a big kick start to life for the early germinants and seedlings across the landscape.
Environmental condition accounts will be reported annually using the independently audited and certified Accounting for Nature Framework.
Kilter Rural is the first corporate land manager in Australia to undertake a rigorous and scientifically robust methodology of environmental condition reporting.
