Ensure your conversion to pasture project meets requirements

​​​​Conversion to pasture management actions (Sections 40–42) are similar, but not identical, to those for pasture renovation management actions carried out under a sustainable intensification project (see Sections 37–39).​

Pasture renovation within sustainable intensification vs conversion to pasture project management activities

Planting vigorous grasses makes pastures more productive, while at the same time sequestering more carbon as biomass (fine roots and leaves) than when land is continuously cropped.

If you renovate pastures within a sustainable intensification project management activity (Section 36):

  • The CEA must have been under pasture for at least two years before applying for the project.
  • You must have one other sustainable intensification management action running in the CEA at the same time.

If you conduct a conversion to pasture project management activity (Section 40):

  • The CEA must not have been under pasture, but have been either bare ground or under crops during the five-year baseline.

A written pasture renovation strategy and seeding to create permanent pasture apply to both projects.​​
