CaneRise links cane farmers in the Mackay Whitsunday region to opportunities to grow productivity and profits through sustainable practices.

CaneRise is part of a project funded by the partnership between the Australian Government’s Reef Trust and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation to help cane growers implement practices that improve their cane, soil and water quality in Reef catchment areas.

The website provides a central location for growers to find:

  • opportunities to get involved with water quality improvement projects in the Mackay Whitsunday region
  • useful tools and resources
  • local support to implement sustainability practices
  • available funding.

The site is a response to feedback from growers and other stakeholders that it’s difficult to find relevant tools, advice and practice change support for the Mackay Whitsunday area in one central place.
