GRAIN growers are being offered funding to build their technical knowledge and professional skills through group study tours.
Growers in Queensland and NSW are being encouraged to consider undertaking study and professional development that will enable their grain producing businesses to be productive, enduring and profitable.
Available through the GRDC Grower and Adviser Development Program (GAD), the funding support is available to growers (and accompanying advisers, or groups of advisers) for domestic and international travel.
Support will be provided on a competitive basis for arranging visits to GRDC-supported research and development projects, other relevant research projects, centres of excellence, farming systems groups and similar; or to support the travel of an expert in a specific scientific field to visit a community to share their knowledge and experience.
Preference will be given to applications from groups of growers (five or more growers), that demonstrate clearly identified area/s of study, a hypothesis linking the area of study to local grain production, learning goals and proposed outcomes.
Applications must be submitted via the GRDC Grains Investment Portal. CLICK HERE and follow the prompts to register.
Applications are open until July 5. CLICK HERE for more information.
