The Future Drought Fund is investing $40 million in long-term projects trialling innovative drought resilient farming practices.
The Long-term Trials of Drought Resilient Farming Practices Grants program supports a limited number of trials that test the effectiveness of drought resilient farming practices over several years.
Projects in the trial are encouraged to utilise a combination of sites and include at least one trial location where scientific evaluation occurs.
Successful applicants will also undertake activities to support the adoption of drought resilience innovations on farms, with the aim of reducing exposure to drought risks and improving farmers’ economic, environmental, and social resilience to drought.
This evidence-based approach will provide farmers with the information and confidence they need to try the practices themselves.
Grants of up to $8 million (GST exclusive) per application are available to successful applicants.
Projects will receive funding until 2027 - 28.
Who can apply
Applications are sought from collaborative, multi-disciplinary and multi-institution consortia, including farmers.
A consortium must nominate a lead organisation who will be solely accountable to the department for the delivery of the activities.
For more information on eligibility criteria for lead organisations, see the Grant Opportunity Guidelines at GrantConnect.
