Researching innovative solutions
We’re helping build Vietnam’s innovation capacity and deliver agriculture and food research to market.
Soil health is vital to food and fibre production and maintaining a healthy environment. Our research spans methodologies to measure soil carbon, digital technologies to improve soil management and cost-effective ways of tracking soil condition.
FutureFeed livestock feed
A livestock seaweed feed supplement could help global food security and fight climate change by reducing powerful greenhouse gas emissions.
Chameleon water sensor
We have developed an accessible system for the world's most vulnerable farmers that notifies them of their crop's soil water levels, and helps them make decisions that significantly boost their crop yields.
Exploring alternative future food systems
Together with partners, we are improving capacity to simulate complex interactions in the global food system.
Environmental impact of diets
We know a poor diet can have severe outcomes on our waistline but they can also have important impacts on the environment too.
A pilot tool that allows Australian farmers to evaluate, benchmark and communicate the environmental footprint of their production.
Aquatic foods in healthy and sustainable diets
We are analysing how aquatic foods could further contribute to healthy and sustainable diets around the world.
Labour impacts on agriculture
The supply and quality of labour affects the productivity, profitability and long-term sustainability of all agricultural commodities. Recent analysis suggests the horticulture sector is particularly vulnerable in this area.
Global Burden of Animal Diseases
We're part of a global consortium that aims to quantify the societal impacts of livestock diseases to better inform future investments in animal health.
