The NSW Government has launched a new program to train farmers adopting agricultural technologies and digital farm solutions in rural and regional NSW courtesy of the $48 million Farms of the Future program.
The Agtech training aims to build producers’ skills and confidence to use new technologies so they can make an informed investment for their farm.
The one-day training program is a prerequisite for the Farms of the Future funding program where eligible farmers can apply for grant funding to purchase Agtech devices from the program’s approved supplier catalogue.
The training program has been developed in partnership with Tocal College, one of Australia’s leading providers in specialised training for agricultural and rural industries.
The Farms of the Future program is part of the NSW Government’s Future Ready Regions strategy, delivered by the Department of Primary Industries and funded by the Regional Digital Connectivity program.
More information about the training is available on the Farms of the Future website.
