The Western Australian No-Tillage Farmers Association (WANTFA) is driving adoption of sustainable and profitable broad acre cropping systems by sharing farmer experiences and innovations from our research and field trials.
WANTFA is the largest agronomic grower group in Western Australia. We support the adoption of sustainable and profitable broad acre cropping systems by sharing grower experiences and innovative research. Formed in 1992, WANTFA was built on the ethic of grower helping growers. It is the only WA group that solely focuses on conservation agriculture (no-tillage and zero-tillage). WANTFA endorses farming practices that support the following principles:
- Limited soil disturbance,
- Permanent ground cover,
- Diverse rotations, and
- Reduced compaction.
WANTFA operates with the support and assistance from the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), Australian Government, Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF), corporate sponsors, events income and membership fees. WANTFA is a member of the Conservation Agriculture Alliance of Australia and New Zealand (CAAANZ).
