About the the training
Scott Wallace from Growcom will walk through the steps necessary to obtain Reef Certification for avocados, including the required components of nutrient, sediment, pesticide and irrigation management.
Scott will also talk about auditing, and has allocated time for questions.
This is a great opportunity to kick start your Reef Certification to demonstrate your environmental stewardship and industry best practice standards in the Great Barrier Reef catchments.
The Hort360 Reef Certification aligns and leverages off current systems (i.e. Freshcare) used by horticulture businesses to provide a specific water quality outcome. This will ensure there is reduced administration effort for you.
Hort360 is likely to meet the requirements of the new standard to be applied under the new Queensland Government reef regulations, which are due to be implemented in 2022.
The Hort360 Reef Certification audit is free and assistance to complete the compliance requirements is available via the Hort360 GBR team.
