STEWARDSHIP IS EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBILITY
Stewardship in sustainable farming systems ›
- Advancing best production practices through stewardship and compliance that preserves the integrity of the grains supply chain and ensures Australian canola will be in high demand.
- Industry stewardship initiatives in Australia for crop protection chemicals and for seed/biotech are described in CropLife Australia: ‘Supplying sustainability through stewardship’
- Responsible stewardship in canola rotations helps farmers continually reduce their environmental footprint through careful application of pesticides and promotes sustainable farming methods such as strategic integrated weed management (IWM) and minimum tillage practices.
STEWARDSHIP ALONG THE SUPPLY CHAIN
- The core stewardship principle adopted by the Australian grains industry is that co-existence of technologies ensures growers and consumers can exercise their choice to use new production technologies and make consumption choices.
- Putting stewardship management practices to action along the supply chain recognises the importance of encouraging innovation and investment in technology access, grower capability and market access for ALL key canola industry stakeholders.
- Creating a ‘community-based’ stewardship program uses local knowledge and assures participation of ALL key stakeholders including farmers, industry, agronomists and state agencies.
