KAINet Case Study developed and will be published and shared
KAINet is a national network and we expect that several agricultural–sector organisations will join and actively participate in the network once it is rolled-out
The centres that participated in the pilot project have the capacity to support new members and by working together we can provide information that will act as fuel to drive and sustain a thriving agricultural system.
