The Kuhlmann family have been farming on the western side of South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula for more than a hundred years. Peter Kuhlmann is the latest generation to farm the challenging calcareous soils in this part of the state.

Like many growers, Peter has been keen to see more done to better understand these soils and has welcomed the new GRDC calcareous soils investment.

The $6.75 million GRDC investment is an industry collaboration with the Soil CRC, CSIRO, Primary Industries and Regions South Australia and the New South Wales DPI.
