Objective Summary

The Moorabool Landcare Catchment Group is confident that the Online Hub, Producer Technology Uptake Workshop(s), and producer engagement would all provide much needed information guidance and support for producers on the practical aspects of agricultural technology. The AgriFutures funding would allow us to proactively connect with farmers – and would allow the farmers to connect with one another – increasing community links. The Moorabool Catchment Landcare Group would be able to facilitate future opportunities for farmers to meet and share information about their technology uptake experiences. After the completion of the workshop, farm technology planning and activities, producers would definitely be more confident, capable and supported in their digital technology journey. We would expect them to engage with the technology that can improve their on farm productivity today and as they move forward to CN30.
