The Queensland government will invest a further $270 million in protecting the Great Barrier Reef and regenerating land as part of the state budget next week.
But farmers and stakeholders in the north will wait for the budget to be handed down before assessing the impact it may have.
The multimillion dollar injection is set to build on $400 million already invested in the reef since 2015.
Environment Minister Meaghan Scanlon also announced an extra $60 million would be allocated to the Australian Land Restoration Fund to "turbocharge carbon farming" in the state.
Ms Scanlon says the large investment is part of the government's continued push to move the dial further in protective measures for the reef.
"The $270 million announcement is part of new funding to provide confidence and certainty to industry that the government backs the reef," she said in Cairns on Friday.
"Our increased expenditure in the reef and the Land Restoration Fund will help spark Queensland's economic recovery while also ensuring our native fauna and flora, and our cultural heritage will be preserved and enhanced for the generations to come."
However, the Queensland Farmers' Federation says they won't comment on the proposed investment until all details are known.
CEO Dr Georgina Davis says the QFF believes maintaining a sustainable agriculture sector is essential to the longevity and prosperity of Queensland farmers and the environment into the future.
Deputy Premier Steven Miles says threats such as sediment, fertiliser and nutrient runoff, climate change and ocean acidification were all part of the challenges that the government's investment is aimed at addressing.
"We're working with landholders to reduce sediment runoff from their lands, pesticide runoff and fertiliser runoff, helping them to plan and keep more trees on their land," he said.
"But also help to capture carbon in the soil and do our part in assisting in the effort to address global warming."
The additional $60 million allocated to the Land Restoration Fund adds to a previous $500 million commitment by the state government.
Ms Scanlon said more funding would be announced in Tuesday's budget for environmental initiatives in the areas of waste, national parks, resource recovery and wildlife.
