About

Drought is a fact of life in Australia and to boost the longevity and strength of Queensland horticulture, Growcom is working with government bodies, industry service providers and natural resource management groups to enhance farm business outcomes, through Hort360 Drought.

Growcom’s Hort360 Drought program will support farmers to prepare for, manage and recover from drought.

The program, to be rolled out across Queensland, is supported and funded by the Federal Department of Agriculture Water and Environment, through the Future Drought Fund and the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries through their Drought Assistance Program.
