The Soil Wealth ICP project develops informative and timely resources in a range of formats.

These resources target specific vegetable and melon issues and allow growers to apply knowledge to solve problems within their business.

Resources have been developed by the Soil Wealth ICP project team and a range of R&D service providers. We acknowledge the valuable work done by these teams in developing the resources and will share new information as they become available.

Use the search function below to filter resources by area, crop, topic or type.

You can also search across these options by adding multiple key words into the search box (e.g. NSW brassica cover crops).
