The purpose of this grants program is to foster sustainable natural resource management innovation. Smart Farming Partnerships fund experienced and skilled organisations to undertake projects in partnership with others to encourage Australia’s agricultural, fishing and forestry industries to trial, develop and adopt sustainable natural resource management innovations and deliver more sustainable, productive and profitable agriculture, fishing, aquaculture and forestry industries. Industry implementation of innovative practices also assists Australia to meet its obligations under international treaties including those about climate change, desertification, biological diversity and fish stocks.Smart Farming Partnerships applicants form consortium partnerships to develop and deliver their project. Partnerships may relate to any form of food and fibre production, including dryland and irrigated cropping, livestock production, dairy, horticulture, mixed farming, forestry, farm forestry, fishing and aquaculture. Partnerships may deliver projects at different scales, including at the national, multi-regional or regional scales. Smart Farming Partnerships projects allow new ideas to be developed, tested and shared across farms, industries and regions, to the benefit of the Australian landscape, community and economy.
