Online Tool for Decision Making Pathways

This project will provide farmer-friendly tools to assist farmers in adopting innovations that reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, improve soil and animal health, and support a healthy ecosystem.  It is recognised that farmers are best placed to guide this project, through identifying the information that farmers need to make decisions, and testing the tools to ensure that they provide practical assistance. Each farmer has a unique set of circumstances, and needs to balance costs, benefits and risks in pursuing their business objectives. Many innovations take time to achieve results, and farmers may choose to make incremental changes that can be introduced into their farming practices with minimal interruption. If support is given for farmers to observe and assess the outcomes of these changes, they will gain confidence in steadily pursuing innovations that will achieve long term benefits with minimal risk.
