Funding for AgForward ended in September 2012
The AgForward project helped more than 11,000 Queensland landholders affected by the Vegetation Management Act, one of the biggest issues to hit Queensland landholders.
Through funding from the State Government, AgForward staff provided free workshops and one-on-one assistance to help producers understand the vegetation management laws, dispute incorrectly mapped areas and secure cleared farming areas by applying for a Property Map of Assessable Vegetation (PMAV).
The project also delivered vital skills and technology to producers including GPS and property computer mapping workshops and spatial imagery to help landholders develop skills to improve property planning and management.
While AgForward is no longer delivering free computer mapping workshops, a limited number of digital mapping workshops will be delivered through AgForce Projects' Landholder CSG Project.
AgForce Projects is also delivering property computer mapping workshops for a fee in the Fitzroy Basin region in conjunction with the Fitzroy Basin Association Grazing Training Reimbursement Program.
Check the events calendar for upcoming dates.
These services are also available through AgServices, the fee-for-service arm of AgForce. Contact AgServices for a quote today on 3238 6048.
