Sugar Research Australia’s District Productivity Plans have been developed through consultation and engagement undertaken through SRA’s Industry Services team.
Development of the plans has involved participants across the sugar industry supply chain to identify constraints impacting productivity and profitability at the local level.
Different sources of data have been used as inputs including grower ideas and contributions from past strategic workshops held with SRA, the ABARES Sugarcane Farm Business Survey, mill data, impact assessments, where applicable, and a variety of survey results.
The plans highlight specific local issues with proposed solutions and actions to address them and will be updated and reviewed annually to drive investment at a local level.
Reporting on progress will occur six monthly.
The key to success will be implementation which will require leadership, change and focus.
