Project Bluewater

Project Bluewater 2 assists sugarcane growers to improve pesticide management practices. Participating growers receive a tailored pesticide management plan, expert assistance and incentives to calibrate and upgrade their pesticide application equipment.

A strong focus of the project is upskilling growers by providing farm one-on-one extension support, group training, development activities, on farm water quality monitoring, field walks and demonstration sites.

These activities will foster reduced pesticide use and the selection of lower risk pesticides to minimise pollutants entering the waterways and running to the Reef.
