Stock and Waterways: Australian River Restoration Centre guide

Monday, April 1, 2019

Twelve years since they first published the guide, the Australian River Restoration Centre have released an updated Stock and Waterways: a NSW Managers Guide.

In 2006, Land and Water Australia released the 'Stock and Waterways: A Manager's Guide'. Due to it's popularity, the guide was reprinted three times and has become a key practitioner reference document. 

Twelve years later, they are delighted that their partners WaterNSW have joined with them through the Rivers of Carbon Program to update the document into 'Stock and Waterways: A NSW Manager's Guide'.

First national maps of pesticide and fertiliser use

Thursday, February 28, 2019

Innovative new datasets, estimating the amount of pesticides and fertilisers used in each 1km square in England annually, have been produced by the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology.

The data will provide researchers, water companies and policy-makers with more information on the likely extent of pesticide and fertiliser use across landscapes so they can work with the agricultural industry to develop more sustainable farming methods, including greater efficiency in agrochemical application.
