Nuffield Australia 2016 Scholarship winner
Randall Wilksch, from Yeelanna in South Australia, receives a Nuffield Scholarship supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (southern region).
He will study: “Why are there so few women in broad scale agriculture?”
Randall will focus on the potential barriers to this gender imbalance, incentives or methods to encourage more females into agriculture and sectors of agriculture that have a greater ratio of women and reasons why this is the case.
As a partner in his family’s 3650 hectare grain production enterprise, on both owned and leased land, his key responsibilities are managing crop protection for wheat, canola, faba bean, lentil, lupin and barley plantings.
Randall is husband to Julie and father of four children (two girls and two boys). He is passionate about the future of people in agriculture and food production.
For his research, he will travel to Ireland, UK, Europe, Canada, the USA, New Zealand and within Australia in order to research this topic.
