Project Catalyst supports a network of Mackay Whitsunday, Burdekin and Wet Tropics farmers who are leading the way in the use of cutting-edge management practices for a more sustainable and productive farming future.
Project Catalyst is a pioneering partnership between more than 70 innovative Queensland cane growers, Natural Resource Management (NRM) groups, the Australian Government, WWF, and The Coca-Cola Foundation.
The project aims to support sugarcane growers and to promote groundbreaking farm practices that improve water quality from sugarcane farms impacting the Great Barrier Reef.
The expressions of interest for innovative growers have now closed. Project Catalyst was looking for the next wave of innovation that would help move the industry forward as it continued its journey toward a more productive, profitable, and environmentally friendly future.
