Enrichment tours

38506043_mEnrichment tours are a key focus of the program where students travel to specially chosen farms, research centres and peak industry organisations to experience modern agribusiness in action.

The enrichment tours allow students to extend their knowledge of the industry. In 2013 the first group of students visited enterprises such as cotton and beef operations as well as the I A Watson Grains Research Centre – University of Sydney Plant Breeding Institute at Narrabri.

The enrichment tours provide AGCAP students with the opportunity to form a network of career support. They meet people who are shaping the industry at the grass roots level and students have been known to call on these people to help them find a job or direct their agricultural career.
