Over the next five years, GRDC plans to invest more than a billion dollars in research, development and extension to deliver significant gains for Australian grain growers.
Investing aligned to where the value lies and how we approach and solve problems together will make the difference and ensure our success.
Growers hit yield and profit targets, across every paddock, every season.
Productivity of crops exceeds what we thought possible.
Growers have access to a diversity of markets and get more for the crop.
Australia's grains industry remains a global leader in sustainability, for people, the planet and our long-term ability to farm.
Australian grain growers seek out and adopt new technology and have an appetite for change. Science and technological innovation are progressing at a rapid pace. The world needs affordable, safe, sustainably produced food, feed, and energy – and lots of it. Whilst change is inevitable and challenges lie ahead, the Australian grains industry is well placed to build on our efficiency, reputation, and location to capitalise on strong global demand opportunities.
This is our time to invest to deliver the next agricultural revolution.
