OVER 300 interested people from Queensland and northern NSW have become involved in the Sugar Advisory Services Development Program (SASDP) over the past seven months.
Many of these 300 individuals have participated in multiple activities, with over 535 attending or registering for the 34 short courses conducted by the SASDP so far, and the 10 sessions currently on offer.
“The SASDP set out with ambitious goals and it has exceeded all its targets,” said Dominic Nolan, Australian Sugar Milling Council CEO. “It is a success story in helping changes to extension and is making a big contribution to upskilling many people with sugarcane production knowledge”.
“This is exactly why the milling sector has supported the SASDP with special funding as a key part of the Sugar RD&E Reform package agreed by the Australian Sugar Industry Alliance in October 2011”.
Places are available in an exciting new 1-day course called ‘Understanding the Sugar Industry Value Chain’ which will look at the interfaces of sugarcane growing and milling and how optimum decisions can be made. This course is being led by the Queensland University of Technology with presenters from the Australian Sugar Milling Council , CANEGROWERS and the Professional Extension and Communications (PEC) Unit.
