Study tours

Applications are currently on hold due to an uncertain travel environment.

The purpose of grower and adviser study tours is to gain knowledge, learn new skills, build relationships and leverage our research investments.

We’ve supported growers and advisers with clear learning objectives aligned with either the Key Investment Targets (KITs) or the Capacity and Ability Framework within our RD&E Plan.

The success of the Australian grains industry is dependent on growers’ uptake of research outcomes, and understanding of issues and opportunities. Supporting growers and advisers to undertake study tours has been an investment in our key stakeholders and is highly valued by our growers, advisers and us.


We’ve supported growers and advisers pursuing a clear learning objective that will lead to practice change on farm, study tour groups must consist of minimum 75% growers.  We’re unlikely to support applications where greater than 50% of the total investment is sought.

Support may occasionally be considered for individual growers who hold leadership positions in the Australian grains industry, and where the activity supports outcomes proposed in the Capacity and Ability Framework (see page 22 of our RD&E Plan). It must also benefit the industry as a whole.

Ensuring outcomes of study tours are communicated effectively to the industry is an important component of these investments. For more information, read Study Tours now assessed on continuous basis.
