The Department of Agriculture and Fisheries is a world leader in researching and developing broadacre field crop industries in the tropics and subtropics. We undertake research and development in cereals, pulses and oilseeds, fodder, fibre and specialty crops.
We aim to:
- improve productivity and quality
- meet market demands
- add value to products
- predict and manage climate change
- develop sustainable production practices.
Specifically, the Broadacre Farming Systems team is involved in several research and extension projects. A summary of these is provided in the current and past projects tabs. If you would like more detail on these projects and results please contact the relevant team member.
