TF11.14 RP167C Sandy Creek - On farm change for water quality improvement
Project aim: Sandy Creek is in the Plane catchment of the Mackay Whitsunday region and is considered a very high risk area for pesticides and a high risk area for nitrogen (Scientific Consensus Statement, 2013). Improvement in water quality depends upon improving land management practice by growers.
In order to improve water quality flowing from Sandy Creek to the Great Barrier Reef, this project will:
a) Monitor sub-catchment water quality to link farm practice to in-stream water quality and direct extension activities to sub-catchments where water quality exceeds guidelines;
b) Provide targeted extension services to reduce off-farm losses of pesticides and nutrients through adoption of specific management practices;
c) Identify management practice change barriers and develop strategies to overcome these through novel social approaches
