There is considerable evidence to suggest that the impacts of climate change will affect primary producers, disproportionately, in relation to other economic activities. Forestry, horticulture, and dairy depend not only on day-to-day climatic conditions, but have built their businesses around experience and understanding of a long-term mean. Delayed, insufficient, or even a failure to adapt will have significant costs and attendant effects on business survival. To support adaptation in the primary sector targeted mechanisms for information delivery, innovation, practice-change and knowledge transfer need to be enhanced. Therefore, the aim of this research was to identify novel methods of technology transfer and communication in order to support adaptation planning in the primary sector.
