• Dr Rebecca Bartley and Dr Zoe Bainbridge both presented results from their NESP TWQ Hub projects at a recent Landholders Driving Change field day in the Burdekin catchment. The field day was documented in the NQ Dry tropics publication, The Grit, with the Landholders Driving Change project outlined here.
• A TWQ Hub project has attracted further funding to develop and commercialise its world-first nitrogen fertilizer insurance product, designed to help farmers manage the risk of reduced yields from reduced fertiliser application. Innovative economic levers: a system for underwriting risk of practice change in cane-farming recently secured a $200,000 expansion under Reef Trust Partnerships to better understand the perceived trust in the project and how best it can be commercialised for industry, a great example of NESP research enabling new scientific an economic opportunities.
