Mapping the Wimmera’s Agricultural Knowledge
Wimmera Development Association (WDA) will be conducting research over the next month to gain an insight into the knowledge and skills of agricultural producers and agribusiness professionals.
The research will help identify the skills and training required to keep agriculture at the heart of the Wimmera's economy.
Wimmera agricultural producers are some of the most efficient in Australia, if not the world. With so much change taking place in production systems, business models and technology, education and training opportunities will need to support those changes. We need to make sure local education opportunities match producers' needs.
This research project is about preparing our farmers for the future, acknowledging that our agribusiness sector is extremely important to farm businesses, and making sure we can access the right education locally.
