The elements being demonstrated are usually ‘new to market or untested;' the best minds and visionaries (farmers and scientists) coming together to build on the collective thoughts of both groups. The Demonstration farm is innovation in practice.
The Demonstration Farm Programme will deliver outcomes that appeal to early adopters and high performing farmers. The primary point of difference for this concept is that Demonstration Farms showcase and demonstrate a narrow category of farming activity.
The demonstration farm concept was developed out of a need to see increased levels of practice change on farms. Demonstration farmers meet with Scientists to select the innovation they want to trial. The single initiative innovation is implemented and then showcased.
