Project Aim

To demonstrate the carbon sequestration potential of sandalwood systems in the eastern Wheatbelt.

 

Project Description

There is the potential in the eastern wheatbelt to use unproductive cropping land to create a dual purpose system to sequest carbon and produce a successful agroforestry plantation. This site will be direct seeded with a diverse mix of sandalwood and host species, using new machinery engineered by local farmers which will reduce the cost of implementing this system.

 

Project Outputs

Project outputs will be added once the trial has been completed.
