AgInnovate is based in rural Australia. We are a national agricultural extension, people and culture consultancy, servicing the Australian industries.
Established in 2014, AgInnovate began in Narrogin, WA, filling a gap in the Australian agricultural consultancy market for project managers with a working knowledge of Australian agricultural systems and a passion for communication and change (otherwise known as extension).
We love where we live and we love what we do. We are part of proud farming families, communities and industries.
We love working with people, especially the people involved in Australian agriculture.
We have a vibrant history and experience in delivering professional development training, extension and communication programs for the agricultural industries.
Our experienced team is smart and professional. We are known for our strategic thinking, clear communication and innovative ideas.
Our Commitment to Results
We pride ourselves on our experience in understanding farming and farming families using the science-of-farming and farming systems approaches when delivering our quality training programs, extension projects and running regional events.
