The Challenge

The long-term sustainability of our agricultural industry faces many challenges. The future for some farms is uncertain due to

  • 8Declining soil health and farm productivity
  • 8Difficulty adapting to new business models and accessing contemporary expertise
  • 8Increasing compliance and regulation
  • 8Changing international trade environments
  • 8Drought
  • 8Flood
  • 8Pest plagues and new diseases
  • 8Water shortages and the rising cost of irrigation
  • 8Labour shortages and skill gaps

The impact of a changing climate and the pandemic on the national and global economy, means that new solutions are needed to meet the emerging challenges of

  • 8Previous export models no longer being viable
  • 8Increased reliance upon local product development
  • 8Increasing international pressures to improve climate change targets
  • 8Expectations for creating a new, green economy
  • 8Adapting to new international trade models post-pandemic
  • 8Rising unemployment
  • 8Increasing water use and decreasing supply
  • 8Increased reliance on chemicals to maintain productivity

The Opportunity

Early Findings*

Arlington Pacific Australasia’s pilot site in South West Queensland has provided the beacon to test new farming practices aimed at achieving improved agricultural, economic and environmental outcomes.

Early testing by Arlington Pacific Australasia and its research partners has found:

  • 8Restoration of poor quality soil depleted from over farming now generating produce yields and growth rates never experienced before on site
  • 8Large increases to soil carbon capture rates
  • 8Decreased reliance on water for irrigation purposes
  • 8Increased growth rates of cattle
  • 8No need for the use of chemicals or other artificial products
  • 8Overall improvement to farming practices and productivity
  • 8Practical training opportunities for local youth and unemployed providing direct relationship and employment opportunities between farmers and trainees
The changing agricultural, economic and environmental realm creates an opportunity to re-think our approach, to adapt and maximise the benefits of new, innovative strategies through
Addressing agricultural industry labour shortages
Improving the skills of agricultural workers
Becoming global leaders in agricultural farming practices
Increased productivity and carbon capture by re-lifeing over farmed soils
Creation of a new green economy from soil carbon capture
Playing a major, positive role towards addressing carbon emission targets
Increased resilience of our farms during times of natural disaster
Reduced reliance on water and chemicals
Introducing new farming models to maximise yields and viability

* Arlington Pacific Australasia pilot site was established in late 2020. Pre, current and post performance data is being recorded and will be available by 30 June 2021.

Our company values

Arlington Pacific Australasia’s pilot site in South West Queensland has provided the beacon to test new farming practices aimed at achieving improved agricultural, economic and environmental outcomes.

Early testing by Arlington Pacific Australasia and its research partners has found:

  • 8Improve our environment by reducing water consumption, reducing the reliance on artificial chemicals and reducing carbon emissions
  • 8Assist to address the rate of unemployment and to improve the skills of persons working within the agricultural sector
  • 8Improve farmland soils to increase resilience during both El Nino and La Nina
  • 8Improve the long term sustainability of farms
  • 8Create a new green economy.
Our leadership team combines agricultural experience with broader business and industry expertise, ensuring we understand the industry, yet can also bring a fresh approach to solutions.

A sustainable agriculture is one which depletes neither the people nor the land.

Farm Sustainability Assessment

Our team will undertake an assessment of a current farm in order to identify a range of improvement strategies Arlington Pacific Australasia can provide aimed at improving the financial sustainability of the site. The Farm Sustainability Assessment will investigate:
  • 8Farming soil quality
  • 8Current soil carbon rates
  • 8Planning/ environmental constraints
  • 8Standard of facilities and farm infrastructure
  • 8Equipment provision
  • 8Water and chemical use
  • 8Financial trends
  • 8Yield outcomes against benchmarks
  • 8Opportunities for new/ improved income streams
  • 8Opportunities for improved management
