NY101 - The Nurseryman’s Guide to Water Recycling

The Australian nursery industry is sponsoring work to look into industry’s contribution to the pollution of waterways and how this can be reduced and in the long term eliminated. Overseas the agricultural industries have been forced to recycle their water.  This is gradually happening here in Australia. It is important that the industry moves towards this goal before it is forced upon them and that is it able to demonstrate that it is concerned and active towards reducing its pollution. It also allows the industry to contribute informatively to the bodies drawing up such legislation. This paper is designed to give industry members who are considering recycling their water examples of systems other industry members are using and their experiences, whilst also including example of nurseries recycling water from NSW, Vic and QLD.
