Fertiliser Stewardship Group

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

The FSG brings together a network of government and industry professionals to identify risks to water quality in waterways that lead into the Marine Estate, and to identify knowledge gaps that need to be addressed by research. Our aim is to work with the fertiliser supply chain on the north coast of NSW to tackle the challenges of nutrient management and diffuse pollution in intensive agricultural industries.
