NCC : Grower Extension for Best Management Practices

Maintain a network of trusted extension staff who can provide growers with reliable, consistent information to support decisions for best management practices.

Why it is important?

Growers are in the best position to make decisions regarding their business and practices. Providing them with trusted, reliable information and involving them in the entire decision-making process will ensure they have ownership of solutions or changes which are appropriate for their individual circumstances.

Examples of Local Action

Provide grant opportunities for growers (eg. 50/50 funding) to support implementing BMP.
