Purpose

The Agriculture Education payment may be used:

  • to offset the day-to-day running costs of agriculture departments
  • for ongoing development of infrastructure, facilities and resources
  • for professional development of teachers; and
  • as a contribution to the sinking fund to be held in reserve to buffer the agriculture department against effects of 'natural phenomena'.
