Southern Gulf NRM and the COVID-19 Pandemic
Like every responsible organisation in Australia, Southern Gulf NRM must join the massive community effort underway to minimise the rate of spread of the COVID-19 virus. This will disrupt elements of our work, but we are proud to be playing our part in keeping our community healthy.
We will constantly monitor and be guided by the direction and advice of government health departments and our regional local governments. We will also respect and conform to the COVID-19 responses of our delivery partners and clients.
One element of the support package is the availability of a rebate for professional advisory services. This is administered by QRIDA http://www.qrida.qld.gov.au/current-programs/CFARPRebates are available only for advice provided by registered ‘approved advisors’ who are assessed to have the knowledge and qualifications to provide high quality advice. The rebate program runs until June 2020.
Southern Gulf staff have registered as approved advisors under the program. If you would like advice about agribusiness or environmental aspects of carbon farming please contact Kayler Plant on 4743 1888 to discuss your needs.
2020 Grasshopper Pasture Impact Survey Have you encountered impacts from grasshoppers following recent rains?
Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) is trying to get an idea of the locations and scale of the impacts from the grasshoppers that have been around recently.
You can access the survey at the below link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2020grasshopperimpact
Contact information provided in this survey will be kept completely confidential and will only be forwarded onto the appropriate DAF staff member if a follow up call is accepted and warranted. Information from this survey may be used in presentations to represent areas and extent of damage. This survey is only a data collection survey and if escalated due to a high extent of damage, producers will be contacted to confirm the use of their information.
DAF appreciates you taking the time to fill out the survey.
