Croppers in the Burnett trial soil amendments and pulse rotations to reduce nitrous oxide emissions

Croppers in the Burnett trial soil amendments and pulse rotations to reduce nitrous oxide emissions is an Action on the Ground project.

This project is supported by funding from the Australian Government and is being implemented in partnership with:

  • the Burnett Catchment Care Association 
  • the Department of Science Information Technology Innovation and the Arts 
  • Central Queensland University – Bundaberg
  • the Department of Agriculture and Forestry
  • the Qld Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation
  • Wide Bay Composts, and 
  • FarmSTUFF (Monto).

Based in Monto, Queensland, the project is trialing the use of legume crop rotations and composts to reduce nitrous oxide emissions, improve soil health and increase productivity on cropping land in Queensland’s western Burnett region. On-ground trial work commenced in January.
