Farm Advisory Services

The Grazing Resilience and Sustainable Solutions (GRASS) program can help graziers improve poor and degraded land and meet the requirements under the Reef protection regulations.
Preventing and Remediating Gully Erosion
Erosion caused by wind and water can strip land of valuable topsoil, decreasing productivity and (in its most destructive form) create gullies. To help land managers in central Queensland prevent and remediate erosion on their properties FBA teamed up with Burnett Mary Regional Group (BMRG) to make a five-part educational video series.
Carbon + Biodiversity Pilot (Round 2)
The Carbon + Biodiversity Pilot (Round 2) rewards Australian farmers for planting trees that foster biodiversity and store carbon. Involved landholders will be eligible to receive income from the biodiversity outcomes in addition to the carbon credits generated by their project.
Help protect koalas in the Clarke-Connors Range
FBA is inviting landholders in the Clarke-Connors Range to participate in a Koala Protection Project. Participants will potentially receive funding to assist with habitat management and to contribute their knowledge of local koalas.
