ST: Best Management Practices

Support the agricultural industry to implement best management practices, including through extension and financial incentives, for long term economic and environmental sustainability.

Why it is important?

There is strong support and willingness from landholders to implement BMP, to improve both environmental and economic sustainability of farming land. With some additional support, such as easily-accessible technical advice or financial incentives, many more landholders are likely to come on board.

Examples of Local Action

  • Options to help improve financial incentives and returns, like sustainable food co-ops, value adding to local produce, promotion of Tablelands as a sustainable farming destination.
