Appointment of Inaugural Knowledge Broker Announced in the Roll Out of South Australian Drought Hub

Ag Excellence will engage Mr Tony Randall in the pivotal role of Knowledge Broker commencing early September. This appointment will be critical in contributing to the success of the newly formed South Australian Drought Adoption and Innovation Hub.

The SA Drought Hub is a collaborative initiative led by the University of Adelaide as part of the Federal Government’s Drought Resilience Research and Adoption Program. The SA Drought Hub works in partnership with a network of major SA regional grower groups, all three SA universities, local, state and federal government agencies, advocacy groups, indigenous programs, agribusinesses, industry RD&E partners and industry organisations.

“Ag Ex is thrilled to be part of this major innovative project which is set to make a significant impact on the agricultural industry both within South Australia and nationally”, said Leet Wilksch, Ag Ex Chair.

Mr Randall will join the broader drought hub team in providing linkages and collaboration across the agricultural industry with the aim of driving innovation and adoption of new practices and products. These initiatives will also complement and feed in to the national network of Knowledge Brokers.

“I have a passion for facilitating sustainable land management within the agricultural sector and consider preparedness and resilience to drought being central to achieving this. I bring extensive experience working in agricultural extension, sustainable farming, soils management, biosecurity, quarantine, community engagement, environmental conservation, business development and organisational management”, said Mr Randall.

An exciting step towards preparing South Australian farmers, industries and regional communities for future droughts will be the upcoming Regional Nodes Roadshow Workshops.

Mr Randall will join the Roadshow in September to commence the important process of identifying the priority activities the SA Drought Hub should be delivering over the next three years.
