Rob Hassett from the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries developed the Land Condition Assessment Tool (LCAT) used by NQ Dry Tropics so who better to lead our team in training to develop their assessing skills. These pictures were taken when Rob took NQ Dry Tropics extension staff through their paces on LCAT.
Training to be able to deliver better service
NQ Dry Tropics works hard to increase the impact of extension to help deliver better outcomes for landholders in the Burdekin Dry Tropics region who are involved in projects aimed at improving water quality.
A continuous training program helps employees hone their knowledge and skills. The LDC team travelled to Woodstock recently to take part in a Land Condition Assessment Tool (LCAT) training with Rob Hassett, of the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF). It was organised by the NQ Dry Tropics Sustainable Agriculture team.
LCAT is a science-based assessment to collect a standard dataset of land condition. Accurate and consistently recorded data on the condition of land supports sustainable land management initiatives.
