The Southern Cross University-led Farming Co-operatives and Collaboration Pilot Program has launched a project website that its says will provide resources to help primary producers add value to their products, strengthen their position in the marketplace and boost returns.

The Farming Together website provides primary producers a link to the project and aims to give them access to support and funding opportunities.

The program is looking for ideas that aim to improve farm returns and the website currently receiving applications for support in the areas of research and development, consultancy and product marketing.

Any ideas that the project managers believe show promise will be considered for Farming Together funding.

Primary producers are encouraged to visit the Farming Together website and take a 20-minute self-assessment test to kick-start their applications and register for project updates.
