EP Ag Vision 2050: A shared Vision for farming on the Eyre Peninsula in 2050
Across August and September, a wide range of farming and agricultural research stakeholders were consulted for their views on farming on the EP in 2050. Their perspectives were sought to help shape a draft picture of the features, drivers and enablers of a strong, sustainable farming industry on the Eyre Peninsula well into the future.
This consultation work, driven and supported by AIR EP, SARDI and Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board, has been undertaken, primarily to ensure that Research, Development and Extension priorities and investments on the Eyre Peninsula are being selected to support the realisation of a desirable future for the region and industry. More than that, this advance thinking about the potential pathways to success and likely challenges needing to be navigated, can be employed by other groups seeking to collaborate, align and make a positive impact on living and working on the EP in the decades ahead.
This report – a “roadmap to 2050” – is a summary of the stakeholder input, including electronic surveys and a full-day workshop held in Wudinna with EP farmers, research scientists and representatives from agricultural R&D organisations and peak bodies.
