The project team has expertise gained from studying the effects of previous floods on farm businesses and from working closely with farmers to aid recovery from the 2014 floods.

It will work with farms which have already made changes to improve their resilience to flood events and will identify measures that work well and promote them to others.

The project will carry out research such as trialling some new grass seed mixes which are productive, but resilient to flooding and will promote techniques that will speed recovery after flooding. We will work across whole farms to look at ways to improve productivity on the less flood-prone areas and increase business resilience.
