AWI grower networks
AWI's grower networks are fundamental to the spread of new ideas, continuing education and the adoption of best practice.
AWI invests in on-farm research and development (R&D) to increase the profitability and sustainability of growing wool. On-farm R&D delivers new knowledge to woolgrowers on improving wool quality and productive wool growing.
AWI invests in research and practical technologies to improve sheep health and welfare, and maintain cost and production efficiencies on profitable wool enterprises.
Improving the number, quality and productivity of shearers and wool handlers is a current focus for AWI.
As a naturally produced, biodegradable and renewable fibre, wool is well placed to take advantage of the emerging "green" trend for textiles.
