Grower Consultation

AWI grower consultation meeting

Industry consultation with woolgrowers and post-farm organisations for the National Wool Research, Development and Extension (RD&E) Strategy began in 2011 and will continue every three years during Strategy implementation.

In 2011, a series of woolgrower forums, workshops and surveys delivered over 500 individual project ideas and needs for wool sheep and sheep in general.

The Strategy programs identified as major investment areas for wool industry RD&E from 2011-2030 are:

  1. Wool production.
  2. Wool supply chain management and demand growth.
  3. Wool industry resilience and growth.
