Land

Land management is fundamental to the Australian wool industry.

AWI invests in land management research, development and extension to provide a sound base for the wool industry's ongoing commitment to environmental stewardship. The Australian wool industry has a unique opportunity to demonstrate that rural landscapes can be managed to effectively support profitable grazing enterprises and the natural environment.

In this section
Pastures
We invest in sustainable pasture systems research and extension across all production zones and pasture types to underpin gains in sheep productivity and wellbeing, enterprise profitability and the health of the natural resource.
Soil
Soil health is essential to the productivity and profitability of any wool growing enterprise. We collaborate with industry to provide woolgrowers resources and tools for best practice soil health management.
Biodiversity
Many woolgrowers have profitable enterprises characterised by high levels of native biodiversity by investing in a wide variety of management practices to enhance farm profitability as well as native biodiversity.
Water
Healthy water systems are crucial to the Australian environment, sustaining many different plant and animal communities, agricultural enterprises and rural communities.
Regenerative Agriculture
Many Australian woolgrowers are leaders in environmental management, using innovative practices to successfully improve and restore their farm landscapes while increasing their businesses’ profitability and their own wellbeing.
Drought Resources
AWI has a range of drought planning, management and recovery resources available for woolgrowers going into, enduring and recovering from drought.
Timerite
AWI funded CSIRO's development of Timerite® to predict the best date for spraying in spring to control redlegged earth mites (RLEM) the following autumn on any particular property.
