Reef Regulations information session for sugarcane cultivation *online only

November 22, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

An information session to help sugarcane producers understand the requirements for sugarcane cultivation in the Great Barrier Reef regions

Regulated minimum practice standards for sugarcane cultivation will commence in the Fitzroy and Burnett Mary regions from 1 December 2022. If you’re a sugarcane producer in one of these regions, you will need to comply with minimum practice standards from this date.

The minimum practice standards, including the requirement to develop a farm nitrogen and phosphorus budget, have already commenced in the Wet Tropics, Burdekin and Mackay Whitsunday regions.

This information session will help you understand the requirements for sugarcane cultivation in the Great Barrier Reef regions and will explain what you need to do to comply.

Once you register, you will be sent an email from Eventbrite with links and information on how to join the online Zoom session. If you don’t receive this email, please check your junk folder.

For further information on the new requirements, please visit: https://www.qld.gov.au/environment/agriculture/sustainable-farming/reef/reef-regulations/producers/sugarcane.

Please contact officeofthegbr@des.qld.gov.au if you need help to register or have any queries about this event.

[Note: event capacity will be set at 50 people. If we get close to this number, we will schedule another session, and provide further details on our website.]
