5 Apr 2013 1:07 PM - Letter to rice farmers
The Ricegrowers' Association of Australia is currently involved in a "Stubble Management Awareness Program" with the assistance of government funding under the Caring for our Country program. This has educated growers about alternatives to stubble burning and best practice when burning is considered unavoidable.
Another campaign about responsible burning will be run this season as part of that initiative. An important component of this campaign is reminding growers to use best practice strategies if burning stubble to minimise impact on others.
