Sustained productivity gains in softwood plantations through enablement of single-step genomic selection

This project forms part of a series that aims to at least double the rate of genetic gain in pine tree breeding in Australia. This project will focus on the extensive network of trials and orchards in the Gippsland region of Victoria to further implement cutting-edge single-step genomic selection, provide pedigree and identity assurance for the radiata pine breeding and deployment populations, and deliver new, high-throughput sample processing methods.

On-line measurement of intramuscular fat in hot lamb carcases

An imaging needle using an established medical technology has established a positive proof-of-concept to measure Intra Muscular Fat (IMF) percentage in an un-cut lamb carcase. Intramuscular fat contributes positively to the juiciness and flavour of lamb and is a useful indicator of eating quality. This project will assist in refining the pre-commercial prototype probe under development, validate the precision and accuracy of IMF measurement and release a prototype device to an early-adopter industry partner.

Understanding water quality risk for the sustainable and efficient production of Pacific and Sydney Rock Oysters

The Macleay River is a typical oyster farming estuary that experiences a range of water quality issues. For the first time, this project will collect and analyse very detailed water quality information from this estuary that will be used to build predictive models to show the impact of poor water quality events such as flooding, bushfire runoff, acid sulphate runoff, de-oxygenated water, disease, low salinity and sewage spills on estuaries farming Sydney rock and pacific oysters.
