FAR's research and extension strategy is developed in conjunction with growers and industry with emphasis on developing a balanced portfolio to address issues facing cropping farmers in both short and long term time frames. FAR encourages collaborative investment in research and extension with other industry groups or companies both nationally and internationally. This may involve joint resourcing with expertise sourced from a number of research businesses including FAR.
