Abstract/Summary This report presents the results from a series of analyses that examined the adoption of a number of currently recommended practices (CRPs) to improve natural resource management (NRM) in the Wet Tropics region of far northern Queensland. The practices examined include a number that could be adopted by any rural landholder, those that could be applied by crop growers, and those that could be applied by graziers. Practices examined that could be applied by any landholder include the preparation of property or business plans, the encouragement of regrowth of native vegetation, attending short courses related to land management and participation in Government NRM programs.
