AGRI Strategies does not directly coordinate workshop participants. Training courses are commonly delivered in partnership with organizations such as Landcare, various Govt agencies and private grower groups. We have a long background in training and aim to help progressive farmers to become better farmers. The courses below are a few examples of training that we can deliver.
