As a not-for-profit organisation that exists to deliver value to Australian grain farmers, GrainGrowers is committed to building leadership capacity in the grains sector. With stronger networks across the grains industry, the capacity of the Australian grains sector to grow and develop positively into the future will be strengthened.
Grains Innovation Tour
Each September GrainGrowers hosts the the Grains Innovation Tour, a valuable opportunity to build new and strengthen existing connections between key stakeholders across the grains industry – from researchers to growers, technical support services, policy developers and ministerial advisers. While this is an invitation only event, GrainGrowers welcomes enquiries to attend.
GrainGrowers facilitates international and domestic tours in line with interest and demand. Past tours have included South East Asia and the United States. These tours provide insight into international markets, technology, research and development, and are an invaluable educational experience. Participants gain knowledge, build networks and are presented with innovative techniques that can be replicated within their own farming systems. In addition, we have taken students who have competed in the Australian Universities Crops Competition to the US to compete in the national university crop and agriculture competitions.
