Farmer-driven research has become an increasingly large investment for Research and Development Corporations (RDCs) in Australia since 1994. The pressure on government agencies and demand from farmers for research related to local issues has seen the emergence of well resourced farmer groups undertaking research in regional locations. Both the winegrape and grains industry have well developed regional infrastructure for undertaking research, and a similar trend has emerged in the sugar industry.

This report is targeted at those who fund, conduct and participate in farmer-driven research.
