Sustainability

environment

Conventional versus Environmental

  • Conventional...All registered chemicals are allowed and damage to environment is often NOT considered.
  • Environmental...Minimal or no chemical use, and all on farm practices MUST consider, protect and enhance the environmental ecosystem.

'Environmental is a whole farm approach, promoting
sustainability and a future for the industry'

Why Environmental?

The mighty River Murray  is the life line of our local district.  It is the home of native plants, animals, birds, fish and invertebrates.  It supplies valuable water for towns, cities and our horticultural production.  It must be looked after for generations to come.

'Our survival would not be possible without this element'

Sustainable Agriculture

  • Sustainable agriculture is the production of fruit, vegetables and other plants products using farming techniques that protect the:
    • Environment
    • Public Health
    • Human Communities
  • This form of agriculture enables us to produce healthy food without compromising the future generations ability to do the same.
  • Sustainable farms protect biodiversity and foster the development and maintenance of a healthy eco system.
  • Sustainable food production systems preserve the lands capacity to grow and nourish food into the future.
  • Sustainable agiculture minimises damage to the environment and offers a safe working environment supporting and enhancing rural life and human health.

Ecosystem

  • Everything lives in an ecosystem. A healthy ecosystem is dependant, maximising biodiversity of species and elements that interact in a harmonious way.
  • If one or part of an ecosystem is damaged or disappears it has an impact on everything else.
  • When a system is balanced and healthy, scientists say it is sustainable.
