About Extension Practice

The Extension Practice web pages have been developed to meet the needs of rural and regional Australia for the extension of knowledge and to enable collaboration on important issues in relation to the practice of Extension.

It has been developed as part of an AgriFutures (previously the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation) project called Extension and Adoption for Australian Farmers and Fishers. AgriFutures with funding from the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources as part of its Rural R&D for Profit Programme has developed the site with the support of a working group made up of extension experts from around Australia.

The resources on the site have been curated by the University of Melbourne and Cumbre Consultants.

AgriFutures has a long tradition of investing in people in rural Australia. AgriFutures has funded projects related to extension, rural leadership, women, education and training, safety and capacity building to achieve innovation.  For AgriFutures resources and publications click here.

The Extension and Adoption for Australian Farmers and Fishers project builds on much of the work previously completed by AgriFutures related to extension and capacity building.
