Applications are now open for a new Producer Technology Uptake Program with AgriFutures Australia.
The national pilot program will offer grants of up to $20,000 to producer groups to boost on-farm technology adoption. The grants are available to Australian farming, fisheries and/or forestry producer groups, with a focus on understanding and overcoming the barriers to adoption in their region.
The producer groups in the program will have access to a local-level workshop, providing practical information, decision-making tools and resources.
To be eligible for the AgriFutures Australia Producer Technology Uptake Program, you must:
- Be based in Australia
- Be a producer group that represents producer members (farmers, fishers and/ or foresters)
- Have a registered ABN
- Have a group with at least 10 producers able to attend a training workshop
- Have experience in managing grants, including financial and reporting systems
- Be able to demonstrate that participation in the program will genuinely benefit producers in your group.
