Baseline soil sampling has finished at Weelhamby Farm, CFF’s demonstration property in the Wheatbelt of WA.


It’s currently all systems go at the soil carbon demonstration project at Weelhamby Farm! The 5,000-hectare property in Perenjori, WA, is undertaking a holistic environmental planting carbon and soil carbon project. 


Over the last two months, extensive soil sampling has been undertaken across the 3,200-hectare soil carbon project.  With more than 350 soil sample cores extracted, we will soon find out the project area’s Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) levels, after analysis back at the lab.


Going forward, the project area will see the planting of multispecies cover cropping, including a combination of over 8 native grass species and legumes. This practice aims to increase photosynthesis across the property to promote soil microbial health, ground cover for water retention in the drying climate, and ultimately increase the SOC levels.


Thank you to Carbon West for their core sampling work, and awesome pictures from the stunning landscape.
