Sugar industry riparian management guidelines
MetadataShow full item record
The sugar industry is responding to increasing external scrutiny by improving its environmental credentials. The Canegrowers Environmental Audit identified as s high priority the need for the industry to integrate sound strategies and practices for riparian management into industry expansion, property management planning and best management practice. This project has used research conducted into riparian land management through Land & Water Australia’s National Riparian Lands R&D Program, and tailored it to meet the needs of the sugar industry. Through consultation with cane growers and other industry bodies, the project has produced a publication that is based on the practicalities of cane growing and allows users to adapt it easily to their own situation and management objectives. The publication is entitled - Managing Riparian Lands in the Sugar Industry: A Guide to Principles and Practices, and will be made available through industry networks and organisations such as CANEGROWERS, Bureau of Sugar Experiment Station, Department of Natural Resources and catchment management committees.
