Australia has a long history and strong heritage in agricultural production. The agricultural sector has evolved over the years from comprising largely family operated small to medium sized enterprises to a larger presence of substantial corporate entities and offshore investment. The intensity of agricultural production has generally increased, and many key agricultural areas are situated in locations that support important environmental values, so environmental management is an important focus. End consumers are also becoming increasingly aware of the source of their food products and the environmental and sustainability credentials and carbon footprints of the production process.
We work with a range of agricultural activities ranging from broad scale cropping and grazing, horticulture, intensive animal husbandry, through to a range of agri-industrial operators involved in agricultural produce storage/logistics and/or processing. Our services range from land capability assessments and soil surveys, carbon assessment and management, groundwater investigations and allocation licensing, environmental approvals and permits for processing facilities, and ongoing environmental management including monitoring and reporting. We can also provide advice and services relating to catchment and nutrient management and native vegetation management and revegetation, and a range of mapping, GIS and spatial data management services.
