Helping address global food security challenges

As our communities grow, so does the demand for food. We can contribute to solving our food security challenge by using land resources more efficiently—which is why Agrimin are investing in the Lake Mackay sulphate of potash project. By tapping into one of Australia’s richest sources of sulphate of potash reserve, Agrimin can produce a high-quality fertiliser, helping farmers increase their crop yields.

Our job? We completed a range of environmental surveys including flora and vegetation, fauna and local invertebrate species, subterranean fauna, aquatic ecology, and hydrological assessments, with additional targeted searches for conservation significant species and migratory waterbirds. We also investigated baseline and operational water balance scenarios in relation to the potential effects of climate change. Our findings were used to inform the environmental impact assessment for the project and approvals documentation comprising the environmental review document.

With these assessments in hand, Agrimin was better equipped to meet regulatory needs and improve our approaches to solving food security challenges.
