Promoting productivity - enhancing research, development, extension and adoption

Australian primary producers have an enviable record in innovation and productivity. Evidence suggests that the recent slowdown in productivity gains in Australian agriculture are associated with a decline in the intensity of public and private investment in research and innovation. Productivity improvement is vital to offset the declining terms of trade continually faced by primary producers, helping manage rising input costs and minimise impacts on the natural environment.

AgForce is an active supporter of agricultural research, development, extension and adoption (RDEA) has been involved in a number of initiatives to promote ongoing investment in productivity raising innovations and in assisting producers to adopt useful technologies and improved practices. AgForce owns two research stations, ‘Belmont’ and ‘Brian Pastures’, where industry relevant research and training occurs as well as education programs for the next generation of primary producers. AgForce also has representation on peak bodies with input into research agendas and advocates to governments for funding of RDEA.
