Growing Tasmanian Agriculture - Research, Development and Extension for 2050

​​​​​​​​The Tasmanian Government has released its White Paper on Growing Tasmanian Agriculture – Research, Development and Extension for 2050.

The White Paper forms the blue print for achieving the productivity improvements required to grow the value of Tasmanian agriculture tenfold to $10 billion by 2050.
The White Paper sets out future directions for Research, Development and Extension (RD&E) under four broad areas:
  • measures to increase the sustainable growth and productivity of Tasmanian agriculture and food sectors
  • connecting industry and our public provider the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA)
  • maximising the use of our research farm capacity, and
  • improved evaluation of impact and performance.
