When it comes to dairy farming, soil quality and biodiversity are crucial. Soil is a natural resource that can be used to produce high-quality feeds for animals, and also provide important services, such as pollination. However, the use of mineral fertilizers and pesticides in intensively managed dairy farms can lead to severe environmental problems.
In fact, the soil on dairy farms can become so degraded that it is no longer suitable for raising livestock. Moreover, the high levels of nitrates and phosphates in the soil can have adverse effects on ecosystems. Hence, it is necessary to promote the sustainable development of dairy farming through a series of measures such as soil testing and application of fertilizers at lower rates and reducing the use of herbicides.
Located within the highly sought after Dairy Farm area, the botany at dairy farm is a new 99-year leasehold condominium comprising of 386 units spread over 5 blocks of 9/13/14/15-storey residential apartments with basement carpark. Developed by Sim Lian Group Limited, this development offers full condo facilities and is the lowest priced new launch in this vicinity.
In comparison, the last resale unit of an 84 sqm stack facing south (football field) at Midwood went for $1,507,968 in May 2018 – a premium of 27%! That being said, the resale potential of Botany at Dairy Farm may not be as good as Midwood – which has a retail mall right downstairs and is located closer to Hillview MRT. However, it is still a good option for those looking to enjoy the lush greenery of Dairy Farm Nature Park and the cosy feel of this new development. the botany at dairy farm
