Getting farms to adopt innovation in agriculture
An award-winning study from Massey University has found that getting farmers to understand and adopt the newest ideas and innovations from agricultural science, relies not only on the strength of the research, but also on the way farmers learn, and their learning environment.
The innovative agricultural extension programme involved farmers for an initial 18-month trial and a three-year second phase, of a herb-mix pasture establishment and management trial.
The programme enlisted the expertise within Massey’s Institute of Education to design learning experiences that the agricultural scientists could use to share their research.
