TAPP understands and celebrates the social, employment and economic benefits that our local agricultural industry offer our region. It is well documented that the environmental benefits to surrounding areas can be achieved through implementing best practice knowledge and methodologies in an agricultural setting. TAPP encourages projects and programs which improve agricultural best practices in the Pumicestone Passage catchment.
Growcom and Healthy Land & Water have been working to improve understanding of hydrodynamics of local agricultural areas and have made improvements to water quality run-off.
These practices include changes to methods of fertiliser use and the installation of Bioreactors downstream. Both actions are beneficial in the reduction of Phosphorous and Nitrogen content of the water.
