Australian farmers manage uncertainty and complexity every day. However, the business of farming is becoming more challenging – as farmers face significant climate risk, including future droughts.
The Australian Government is working with state and territory governments to give farmers the tools to manage these risks.
Through this program farmers including farm managers and employees will have access to subsidised learning and development opportunities in strategic business management, farm risk management and decision-making, natural resource management, and personal and social resilience.
Learning and development
This program will provide practical help to farmers to:
- upskill their strategic farm business management and planning approaches to best practice industry standards
- use data to understand their farm business’s strategic risks and improve decision making processes
- learn about innovation and diversification options, new farming practices, systems and markets
- think about succession planning and learn new ways to manage people and time.
The Program will also offer farmers:
- an assessment of their business’s performance, to identify opportunities to build resilience and help track progress
- support to develop or update farm business plans, tailored to their farms
- access to one-on-one professional advice on their plan
- practical tools and resources to take back to the farm.
We are running the program right across Australia – delivered through each state and territory. The program will roll out until June 2024. You can find out what's happening in each state or territory as information becomes available by selecting below:
