Three new mango varieties have been developed by the National Mango Breeding Program (NMBP).

NMBP-1201 is a hybrid cross between Irwin and Kensington Pride (KP).

Carbon farming activities can achieve multiple economic and environmental co-benefits in addition to, in some cases, emissions avoidance offset income.

There is potential to reduce methane greenhouse gas emissions from cattle by selecting for higher feed conversion efficiency, or by using bulls with low methane emissions.

Techniques to reduce livestock greenhouse gas emissions may also increase livestock productivity and resilience.

Carbon farming is the agricultural practices or land use to increase carbon stored in the soil and vegetation (sequestration) and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from livestock, soil or vegetati

Anyone wanting to undertake a carbon farming project to sell carbon offsets has to use an approved methodology to account for the carbon sequestered.

Strategic savanna fire management can be used to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, protect fodder and infrastructure, and potentially attract payment for stewardship activity.

Agriculture is responsible for 14% of Australia's greenhouse gas emissions and is the dominant source of methane and nitrous oxide, accounting for 56% and 73%, respectively, of Australia’s emission

The aim of carbon farming is to sequester more carbon and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as part of Australia's response to climate change.

Nearly all biofuel systems (mainly biodiesel and bioethanol) produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions than fossil fuels (diesel and petrol derived from fossil oil).

The principle of regenerative agriculture and regenerative pastoralism is to restore landscape function and deliver results that include sustainable production, an improved natural resource base, h

Carbon farming is the deliberate set of agricultural practices or land uses to increase carbon stored in the soil and vegetation (sequestration) and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from livestoc

‘Calf scours’ is when young calves develop diarrhoea and become dehydrated. The scour can be white, yellow, grey or blood-stained, and is often foul-smelling.

Identification of livestock is required by law under the Biosecurity and Agriculture Management (Identification and Movement of Stock and Apiaries) Regulations 2013 [BAM (IMSA) Regulations].

We recommend using a natural or constructed grassed waterway to allow safe movement of surface water across the natural landscape, and from dams, the end of grade banks and other surface water disp

Strict movement requirements exist when importing livestock from interstate and/or overseas into Western Australia (WA).

Australia is free of scrapie, which is a fatal, progressive, degenerative disease of the central nervous system of sheep and goats.

The Grower Group Research and Development (R&D) Grants Program awarded $6.7 million to 16 grower groups across Western Australia in its inaugural round.

Australia is free of many infectious horse diseases, sparing horse owners from costly disease control. The occurrence of an emergency horse disease could severely restrict horse movements, racing a

The Western Australian Government has reiterated its support for pastoralists wanting to sequester carbon from their lands through revegetation.
