Agriculture Flagship

Our Agriculture Flagship is helping Australian farmers and industry improve productivity and sustainability across the agriculture sector.

Our research

  • Animal science

    We work with livestock farmers and allied industries to improve their productivity, profitability and sustainability through better livestock breeds and management practices.

  • Aquaculture

    Our aquaculture research is undertaken with commercial partners and fosters the development of quality products such as healthy, genetically-superior animals raised on efficient, sustainable feeds.

  • Food security

    The future world demand for food will place huge pressure on global food systems.

  • Plant science

    We're helping cropping farmers more profitably and sustainably feed and clothe Australia and our export markets. We do this by helping improve plant breeds, better manage increasingly scarce resources such as water, and keep pests and diseases at bay.

  • Sustainable farm management

    We're working with farmers to develop new tools and management practices to increase profitability and productivity, reduce resource use and maintain ecosystem health.
