Direct seeding takes hold

26 April 2018

In 2017, the Port Phillip & Westernport CMA used the direct seeding method to deliver some the out the Greening the West project outcomes.

At a site near Deep Creek, the PPWCMA provided the landholder with advice, indigenous seed and the loan of their direct seeding machine.

The landholder fenced and completed 7.4km of direct seeding with some very good results to date, with additional germinations anticipated over the coming winter.

Below are some before and after shots.
