About RCSNs in the Southern Region
There are three Regional Cropping Solutions Networks (RCSNs) within the GRDC Southern Region, representing key production zones – low, medium and high rainfall. Each of the three RCSNs in the Southern Region has 13 members and includes growers, advisers, agribusiness and researchers.
The purpose of the RCSNs is to identify priority grains industry issues to assist GRDC in the development, delivery and strategic review of targeted research, development and extension activities creating enduring profitability for Australian grain growers.
The objective of the RCSNs is to provide a transparent process that ensures all priority grains industry issues are captured and addressed through targeted investments that deliver the knowledge, tools or technology required by growers to facilitate on-farm practice change.
Southern Region RCSNs
