Hobart-based innovator Allison Clark won the Tasmanian AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award.

Ms Clark has been looking at how farming enterprises tap into research and available networks and the barriers in using this information to make decisions to create a tool kit for agricultural businesses.

She is one of seven state and territory winners who are working on projects to help rural and regional communities, AgriFutures Australia John Harvey said.

“We’re excited to provide these women with a platform to not only use and build on both their professional and personal skills and talents to drive change in rural and regional Australia, but also inspire and support other women whilst doing so,” Mr Harvey said.

Winners receive a $10,000 bursary to help deliver their project and will represent their state or territory at the national awards in Canberra.
