Knowledge is power, and access to the latest technical and scientific information empowers farmers to make informed decisions.
Farmers engage best when they can see results. Platforms for networking and on-ground demonstrations are critical for farmers to see first-hand how new practices can be adopted and used to improve the farm system.
Our Regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitator (RALF) supports farmers, grower groups and local Landcare networks by providing access to research outcomes from the latest agricultural trials and case studies. The RALF also facilitates the adoption of new practices through events, field days, case studies, video testimonials, resource information, newsletters and project updates. Keep up to date with all the latest news via SWCC’s Open Farm Twitter account and the SWAG e-newsletter.
The RALF also provides technical advice and support to farmers through extension activities such as the Grazing Matcher program. Local Landcare groups are a key source of information for farmers and we support them through funding, planning and partnerships so that they can continue to do this important work.
