Our diverse food and farming research ranges from studying the make-up of our crops and animals to the methods and food processing technologies we develop to produce healthier, safer and more sustainable food.
From developing premium feeds right through to gene technologies, we're helping Australian farmers breed outstanding produce.
When we understand the risks to a crop, we can modify the species to protect them from specific threats.
From responsive modelling to intuitive digital technologies, we're developing practical solutions for the agricultural community and industry.
We've developed a range of tools and techniques to answer today's challenges and plan for the future, including gene technology, digital modelling and region-specific strategies.
From carp, rabbits and ants through the full catalogue of weeds, we're using a range of methods to tackle invasive pests.
We're working with industry to develop a range of methods and technology which help food processing.
We've come a long way since farming began in Australia. In this short video, we show how CSIRO is at the forefront of innovation in the agriculture and food sectors, and working towards meeting the challenges of the future.
CSIRO’s cotton research has delivered significant economic, social and environmental benefits to growers throughout Australia.
We research how the microscopic structure of food and how food is processed affect the quality of everyday food products. This work helps support the food industry develop an innovative and healthier supply of manufactured foods and ingredients to Australian consumers and export markets.
