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.


Sugarcane is grown in a range of environments from northern New South Wales to far north Queensland and is a major export crop for Australia. By developing new approaches to produce sugarcane varieties with higher yields, we aim to improve the profitability and sustainability of the Australian sugar industry.

Wheat and barley

We continue to support the wheat and barley industries in the face of global challenges such as climate change, food and fuel security and sustainable agriculture practices. Our efforts build upon more than sixty years of improving yield, quality, management and disease resistance.
