AgriFutures offers new grants for producer groups

23 March 2021

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.

  • 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.
