The first edition of the Bittern Friendly Rice Growing Tips has been launched. The endangered Australasian Bittern arrives in rice crops about two months after sowing and begins nesting once there is sufficient cover. These tips are based on the key findings from the work to date of the Bitterns in Rice Project. They are for rice growers in the NSW Riverina that are keen and able to help conserve this special bird.
