About the ADAPT project
Want to ADAPT to changes in climate and markets?
The Local Land Services ADAPT project will give mixed farm producers and advisors the skills and knowledge you need to meet these challenges head on. We are working with our local farming industry to help people make objective decisions and implement technologies in your farm system.
We will also help with skills needed to improve traceability.
Our staff will run a variety of extension methods and adult learning techniques to work with a wide range of producers and advisers in this project.
This will include workshops, field days, podcasts and on farm trials/demonstrations.
