RP240: Improving knowledge and research for horticulture and cropping activities.

The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) catchment contains 997,948 ha (2.33% of the catchment area) of horticulture and cropping (excluding sugarcane) land which, like all agriculture, has the potential to impact offsite water quality including the GBR lagoon. Information regarding the extent that commodity-specific activities potentially impact offsite water quality is periodically updated to inform the design and implementation of on-ground actions within GBR catchment regions, as well as assist with program and policy decisions. This report finds, collates and qualitatively synthesises existing knowledge of measured losses of water, sediments, nutrients and pesticides from horticulture and cropping (excluding sugarcane) within the GBR catchment, and identifies the present gaps in knowledge that require further consideration.
