Cane to creek 2.0

This project works with sugarcane growers to improve practices that enhance long term land management and progress towards water quality targets. The aim being to deliver direct reductions in pollutant loads, including dissolved inorganic nitrogen and pesticide load and by doing so, this will contribute towards the Reef 2050 water quality objectives. The project uses demonstration sites and working groups to help the industry to better understand the various complex factors that influence both water quality and farming systems through peer to peer learning.

Cane to Creek 2.0 is funded by a partnership between the Australian Government’s Reef Trust, the Great Barrier Reef Foundation with support from SRA.
