DMAW Lawyers attend agribusiness roadshow with Field Systems and Soil and Land Co

David Meegan recently joined Michael Eyres from Field Systems and Ed Scott of Soil and Land Co, who were invited by Landscapes SA (through a funded project by SA Arid Lands Landscape Board and the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program) to present a workshop on soils and carbon to pastoralists and other stakeholders at Bon Bon Station in the northern Gawler Ranges and Nonning Station in the Eastern Gawler Ranges.

The workshops discussed general land management issues, but focusing on carbon capture, storage and sequestration in the context of carbon offset projects. Apart from the technical and land management issues, these projects involve long term commitments by participants with key milestone obligations and requirements, and attendant risk both commercially and legally.
