NQ Dry Tropics has been working with graziers from Bowen to Alpha and from Charters Towers to Greenvale for the last decade.
Our Sustainable Agriculture program can help you fund improvements to your property that result in management practice changes. Our aim is to ensure the future of agriculture in the NQ Dry Tropics region is sustainable, this means reducing soil loss and improving water quality on properties.
We’ve helped graziers:
- fence off rivers and creeks to improve biodiversity and improve water quality
- manage grazing pressure through water management to increase groundcover
- control erosion
- understand soil health

Burdekin Grazing BMP Project
The new Grazing BMP Program is now coming to the Burdekin Dry Tropics NRM Region offering unique opportunities for graziers. The objective of the Burdekin Grazing BMP project is to assist in the delivery of the Grazing Best Management Practice (BMP) Program across the Burdekin Catchment.
The Grazing BMP Program is a voluntary, industry led process which helps graziers to identify improved practices which can help improve the long term profitability of their enterprise. It also helps identify the steps that need to be taken to incorporate best management practices into enterprises.
The Grazing BMP program has been developed from the collaborative efforts of the Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (QDAFF), Fitzroy Basin Association (FBA) and AgForce Queensland.
The Grazing BMP Program is funded by the Qld Department of Environment and Heritage Protection and its success is dependent on a strong collaboration between governments, industry bodies, regional natural resource management bodies and land managers.
More information on the Grazing BMP Program is available on the Grazing BMP Website.
