Mr Redman said the awards afforded primary producers scholarships to research a topic that would add value to the Australian agricultural industry by supporting their overseas travel and study.
“The Nuffield Scholarship program has proven to be a launching pad for scholars from Australia and across the world who are passionate about growth and innovation in the agricultural sector,” Mr Redman said.
“The program has enabled scholars to make a significant impact at a regional and local level, both in their communities and in farm management.”
Mr Redman said Warren-Blackwood boasted many talented and passionate agricultural professionals and noted the opportunities that often arose from participating in the program.
“Scholars produce a written report and communicate their knowledge and experience to others in the industry,” Mr Redman said.
“This knowledge builds the capacity of industry, enabling farmers and agriculture professionals to remain competitive in an ever changing global landscape.
“Ongoing communication, networking and events with fellow Nuffield scholars ensures the learning experience continues even after their participation in the program concludes.”
