Virtual Bus Tour: Building new cane farms using best management practices
Case study type
Australian Government Reef Programme
Queensland Government Rural Water Use Efficiency Initiative – Irrigation Futures
The public can visit the Grottelli family’s project, which aims to restore 202ha of failed tree plantation land back to sugarcane production in the Herbert River district. With assistance from the Australian Government Reef Programme, the paddocks have been laser levelled to improve drainage and limit the potential for run-off and the long drills are set up for GPS-guided minimal till farming.
