NSW Farmers is working with government, research and industry partners to advance sustainable agriculture solutions. An example is the next Gen compost project.
Next Gen Compost was a two-year project commenced in 2016 aimed at increasing the use of compost made from recycled organic waste in commercial vegetable production in the greater Sydney region. It is led by the Greater Sydney Local Land Services in partnership with NSW Farmers and the Institute for Sustainable Futures (ISF). The project was funded by the NSW Environment Protection Authority under its Waste Less Recycle More Organics Market Development Grant Program
Aginnovators provided communications for the Next Gen Compost project and other projects
under the Waste Less Recycle More program. See below for fact sheets, videos and case studies generated as part of the project. For a general guide to resources about using recycled organics in agriculture see Compost information resources: a guide for farmers
