Summary

In an effort to respond to a rapidly changing agricultural environment and boost the industry's competitiveness entering a new age of digital farming, Cotton RDC and a group of Rural Research and Development Corporations (including FRDC) have come together to fund the Agriculture workforce digital capability framework project, managed by Cotton RDC. The project will assist in understanding the digital capabilities required by agricultural workers in order to address any gaps in the ability to meet future demand. The project will also provide education providers with a framework to develop education pathways for up-skilling the agricultural workforce to better adopt technology.
