Abstract

The Soil CRC national survey project, Surveying On-Farm Practices, was initiated in 2019 to implement surveys in all six states, in partnership with local farming organisations. The purpose of the survey was to gain a broad understanding of the drivers of on-farm decision making across, and in-depth understanding within, Australian farming systems. The 2020 Eyre Peninsula social benchmarking survey is part of this national Soil CRC project led by Dr Hanabeth Luke of Southern Cross University (SCU), jointly funded by the Soil CRC, Ag Innovation and Research Eyre Peninsula (AIR EP, a CRC partner) and the Eyre Peninsula Natural Resource Management (NRM) Board. Data gathered will contribute to wider Soil CRC research efforts.
This research employed a survey of all rural landholders in the Eyre Peninsula with a land holding greater than 10 ha. Soil CRC researchers partnered with local groups EPARF and LEADA, who were in the process of merging to form Ag Innovation and Research Eyre Peninsula (AIR EP), as well as Eyre Peninsula Landscape (previously NRM) Board, to develop and undertake the survey. This report provides the results of the survey.
