Northern Grower Networks

The Northern Region Grower Network is represented by six zones, these are: Southern NSW, Central NSW, Coastal and Tablelands NSW, Northern NSW, Southern Qld, Central Qld and Coastal Hinterland QLD. The zones are represented by 48 Grower Network members (growers, advisers, industry and researcher representatives) who provide both geographical and skills-based representation from across the region.

In addition to the member input the Northern Region Grower Network initiative involves 33 GRDC local forums across the region annually, conducted at different locations each year to provide an opportunity for growers and other grains industry stakeholders to engage with the GRDC and identify RD&E opportunities at a local level.

The GRDC is currently in negotiations with partners to co-ordinated Grower Network activities across areas of NSW and Queensland. More details on the service providers for each zone will be provided once negotiations are completed.
