GRASS program targets sustainable management
THE Grazing Resilience and Sustainable Solutions (GRASS) program supports producers to address land in poor or degraded condition.
By participating in the GRASS program, graziers can access resources and identify actions that lead to improved condition and productivity for poor or degraded land.
Participating will also help identify measures that will prevent severely degraded areas from further degrading.
The program has a range of financial incentives to assist landholders to undertake infrastructure improvements such as:
- water troughs; and
- erosion works.
The program also supports landholders to understand the:
- requirements of the reef protection regulations; and
- associated minimum standards for grazing in catchments that flow into the Great Barrier Reef.
The program is funded through the Queensland Government Reef Water Quality Program and is delivered by the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF), Burnett Mary Regional Group, Fitzroy Basin Association and NQ Dry Tropics.
Extension officers from these groups provide support and information to graziers in each region.
