Recognising the importance of continuing education to ensure the prosperity of agricultural enterprises and rural communities, Marcus Oldham College at Geelong, extended its entrepreneurial arm and recently launched The Centre for the Study of Rural Australia which will play a key part in addressing the many issues that impact on agriculture and rural communities.
Guest Speaker and Forum and Symposiums Facilitator for the Centre, Professor Timothy Reeves, emphasised the scope of opportunities for Australian agriculturalists supplying the international markets and feeding the world’s nations. Although hard-hit from demolishing drought, agriculturalists should approach production positively as scientific research provides the crops designed to combat drought conditions. Professor Reeves has worked for 39 years in agricultural research, development and extension, mostly focussed on sustainable agriculture in Australia and overseas.
