Foundation for Arable Research re-launches website

The Foundation for Arable Research (FAR) is proud to announce the launch of its new look website today.

A website survey form was distributed to FAR levy payers and industry personnel who subscribe to the site in order to ascertain their thoughts on how the site could be improved. Feedback clearly identified three areas where there was room for improvement: 1. download speed, 2. visual appeal and 3. ease of navigation.
As a result, major changes have been made to the site to help improve these factors, at the same time giving it a crisp new look and ensuring that the wealth of technical information has been retained for the use of FAR levy payers and industry subscribers.
The web site provides information about FAR, its structure, events, news, a shop as well as providing an array of technical resource tools in the restricted members’ area.
Important note to FAR levy payers and industry subscribers:
In addition to the re-design, we have also improved the security for our members by switching to personalised user names and passwords. Up until the 31st January, the members’ area can be accessed using existing user name and passwords. However these passwords will need to be replaced by a self selected user name and password prior to then for those who wish to continue using the restricted area of the site. Just click on ‘subscribe’ and follow the simple step-by-step instructions to set up your personal account. Should you have any technical hitches, please contact the FAR office on 03 325 6353.
