Southern sugar solutions

Sugarcane growers in southern Queensland have embraced grain legume rotations to improve the sustainability of their farming system. In recognition of grain production in sugar-based farming systems, the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) funded the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (QDAF) and Fisheries-led 'Growers solution project for Coastal/Hinterland Queensland and NSW North Coast', with project activities prioritised by a steering committee of growers and agronomists. The Southern Sugar Solutions project runs in parallel with the GRDC project to capture treatment effects on the subsequent cane crop.

SRA acknowledges the funding contribution from the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (QDAF) towards this research activity.
