We worked with the Border Rivers Gwydir Catchment Management Authority to develop a Seed Supply Strategy. The strategy looked at what was required to get sufficient high quality seed to revegetate 20ha of each of five Threatened Ecological Communities. The strategy covered
- restoration planning;
- calculation of seed quantities;
- identification of seed collections sites;
- recommendations for seed production areas; and
- capacity building recommendations for the seed industry.
The strategy was developed in 2009 and has since allowed a strong seed sector to develop in the region including skilled suppliers, seed handling infrastructure, seed storge facilities and a research program supporting collection, storage and germination.
