Sponsorship - Grower and advisor study tours

We are passionate about the Australian grains industry and recognise the value in grower, researcher and industry engagement.

A well planned study tour can provide lessons on issues relevant to participants and accelerate the uptake of research and development (R&D) outputs. Ultimately, improving the profitability and sustainability of grain growing operations.

Tour organisers seeking sponsorship from GRDC will need to demonstrate in their application how sponsorship will:

  • deliver value for GRDC and the broader Australian grains industry and community
  • promote innovation in grains RD&E
  • value-add or complement existing GRDC activities.
