The Enhanced extension for the Australian tea tree industry project, led by Queensland-based agronomic consultancy, Farmacist is taking a collaborative approach to extension to drive greater adoption of improved management practices.
Farmacist agronomist, Alice Moore, is taking on the lead role of Industry Extension Officer as part of the project.
The project seeks to address a gap in extension and communication activities for tea tree growers and their advisors, which is restricting the uptake and benefits of industry research and development outcomes.
