Fertiliser & Sediment Stewardship

The Clean Coastal Catchments (CCC) project is working with growers and the fertiliser supply chain to improve nutrient and sediment management practices in coastal agricultural while supporting profitable and sustainable production.

The CCC Fertiliser Stewardship Group was established in 2018 in a partnership between the NSW Department of Primary Industries Clean Coastal Catchments (CCC) project and Fertcare® to create an industry forum for growers, advisers, and consultants, as well as fertiliser resellers, manufacturers and suppliers.

Our aim is to bring together an industry network to identify risks to water quality in creeks and rivers that lead into the Marine Estate, as well as to identify knowledge gaps that need to be addressed by research.
