crops and pasture

Is it cost effective to turn over some of your cropping land to shelterbelts? This is the question we hear most often from cropping farmers. 

Every farm has areas that can't be ploughed and cropped - creek and drain margins, fencelines. rock piles and outcrops, around sheds.  These are all ideal places for shelterbelts, windbreaks and shade plantings.

The proven cost benefits of native shelterbelts are summarised in the two 'More Profit' brochures below.
