Summary

This project will identify, create and test sustainable production systems and adoption strategies in the Fitzroy Basin. It supports the adoption of property plans and sustainable production systems. The project also supports management of riparian zones, including riparian fencing, off-stream stock watering points, and allows regeneration for native vegetation to a functional width, along with habitat variability and water quality monitoring.

Benefits

This project will:
  • manage the impact of land uses (grazing, cropping, irrigation, forestry, horticulture) on regional assets (productive land, riparian zones, regional ecosystems, water quality) through the adoption of a property management plan on a neighbourhood catchment basis.
