Development of Database for the Grazing Industry Environmental Stewardship Project
This project was initiated at the request of the funding partners, Meat and Livestock Australia and Australian Wool Innovation, who wish to assist farmers in gathering and reporting on information about environmental stewardship, especially in grazing-based livestock industries.
The object was to develop a secure web interface, called Landleader, and link it to an electronic database which would allow farmers to trial a system of entering data and receiving reports on their environmental stewardship. It also aimed to enable reports of aggregated data to be supplied to industry specialists. Details of the survey content and report structures were provided by other parties.
The trial database and web interface which was developed was thoroughly specified and then successfully implemented through the trial survey process. The solution created demonstrated the functionality of the approach taken and hence will provide confidence that any further development is likely to be successful, provided that those carrying out the work are skilled in the design and administration of databases and web forms.
If and when a fully operational product is developed, robustly tested and released, the beneficiaries will be both livestock producers and the broader Australian community who will be provided with evidence of the level and trend of environmental stewardship in the livestock industries.
