On-Farm Demonstration in South Australia
Demonstration sites have played an integral role in supporting groups of producers to try new grazing practices and perennial systems from EverGraze and other associated projects to increase profitability and improve environmental outcomes. Demonstration sites have been either directly linked to EverGraze as Supporting Sites, or associated with other relevant projects.
