Featured Project

RiskWi$e

GRDC National Risk Management Initiative

One of the largest initiatives undertaken by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is being rolled out on the Eyre Peninsula by AIR EP.

RiskWi$e aims to give farmers and their advisors tools to measure and evaluate potential risks and provide assurance in their decision making. The Eyre Peninsula farming community is a diverse landscape, with majority of farmers dealing with
uncertain weather patterns and markets. The project will engage a working group, comprising of advisors and growers, to review, advise and disseminate information generated. Six location discussion groups will be convened by local farmers across the region, to plan, test, observe and reflect on key questions raised.

This project follows on from the key work done in this area by the Resilient EP Project.
