Extension is a model of research and education outreach that places growers and producers at its centre. Extension responds to their needs rather than the other way around.
This model is common among land based universities in Europe and North America. It is an open and accessible way of bringing evidence-based science and modern technologies to growers and producers to meet their needs. Engagement is often face-to-face rather than purely publication based.
Fill in our NZPPI survey on extension and make your needs known. The results from the survey will feed into the NZPPI extension framework that will be rolled out in 2024.
