RICE AND THE ENVIRONMENT

The rice industry is one of the most proactive agricultural industries in the area of environmental management.

Our industry was the first to initiate a project to return water to the environment through the Living Murray initiative, delivering more than 12,000 megalitres to the river system. We were the first agricultural sector in Australia to develop a regional biodiversity strategy, and the first to develop a greenhouse reduction strategy for growers.

The Rice Growing Industry is commited to environmental best practice, the ECP has been given funding assistance to collaborate with our local partners on a number of projects that improve the industry’s environmental performance.

For more information about any of these projects, please contact our Environmental Projects Manager, Neil Bull:
