The future of agribusiness in the Murray region will rely on the decision-making capacity of farmers.
That is why Regional Development Australia Murray aims to build that capacity through a series of workshops across the region.
Two one-day workshops will be held in Deniliquin, with the first to be held September 26 from 10am to 3pm. A date for the second is yet to be set, but it will run from 10am to 4pm.
RDA Murray executive officer Gary Saliba said the aim of the workshops is to assist farmers in finding new ways to make profit from their farms.
‘‘We are providing an opportunity for farmers to work with us to lead a revolution in farming practice in the Murray region by being thought leaders and reviewing the essence of their business models and having the courage to explore new crops and markets to ensure a successful farming future and support a growing Murray region,’’ Mr Saliba said.
Over the course of two days, farmers will explore real world examples of innovation in agribusiness.
The workshops are partially subsidised by RDA Murray. For more information, or to register, go to www.rdamurray.org.au.
