CCC Fertiliser Stewardship Group (FSG)

Our 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 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. Our aim is to work with growers and the fertiliser supply chain to improve farming practices that tackle the challenges of nutrient and sediment management in intensive agricultural industries.
