Apply now for grants to run long-term trials of innovative drought resilient farming practices

We know farmers can make more informed decisions about trialling innovative or less common drought resilience practices by observing the effectiveness of the practice on the ground.

That’s why the Australian Government is investing $40 million through the Future Drought Fund’s Long-term Trials of Drought Resilient Farming Practices Grants program.

Grants of up to $8 million (GST exclusive, per application) are available for projects to be delivered between 2023-28.

Applications for grants are open now, and collaborative, multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional consortia including farmers are encouraged to apply.

Applications close on 15 March 2023 at 9pm (AEDT).
