Development of an Indigenous Engagement Strategy for fishing interests with a focus on Commonwealth fisheries

This project seeks to develop a strategy for effective engagement between Indigenous fishing interests and management agencies responsible for Commonwealth fisheries, to meet new requirements under the Commonwealth fisheries resource sharing framework. The strategy will also be relevant in other state and territory jurisdictions.

Insights into barriers and bridges to the producer adoption of multi-week and seasonal climate forecasts

The accurate prediction of weather is critical to the success of agricultural industries. This project will investigate farmers' use of multi-week (2-8 weeks) and seasonal climate forecasts (1-6 months) through in-depth interviews with stakeholders from the meat, dairy, grain, wine and sugar industries, to determine ways to increase the uptake of climate information to improve productivity and profitability.

Integrated tick management communications

The management of ticks is critical for livestock production, with Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) estimating that the annual on-farm cost of cattle ticks to the Australian industry is approximately $146m. This project will deliver six practical, producer-facing articles and relevant images to inform producers about integrated tick management.

Can novel seismic survey sources mitigate potential impacts to fisheries?

This project aims to alleviate tensions between the fishing industry and proponents of 3D Marine Seismic Surveys (MSS), used by the petroleum industry to locate potential oil and gas deposits. It will test new seismic sources or ways of using current sources to mitigate potential impacts on marine animals, by assessing their impact on the commercial scallop and the southern rock lobster.

Project B Green

This project seeks to prove the science and economics of a proposed biorefinery in the Burdekin sugarcane region of Australia, that would convert sugarcane juice to glycols and biomass to energy (syngas and hydrogen). Global research into biorefineries has escalated in recent years, as businesses transition to renewable and sustainable feedstocks and reduce reliance on petrochemicals.

Development of regional disease risk models for fungal diseases of pyrethrum

Pyrethrum is a type of chrysanthemum which produces one of the most commonly used non-synthetic insecticides. Diseases such as ray blight and tan spot represent a major risk to yield of pyrethrum in Australia, and this project intends to develop a framework for treatment of the diseases in specific regions.

Use of a purge sensor to improve performance and reduce the need for supervision of batch centrifugals

Batch centrifugals that operate like a spinning washing machine are used widely to separate raw sugar crystals from the mother molasses. This project will trial a Danish-made sensor to show when and how long to add wash water to the batch centrifugal, to purify the raw sugar crystals - a job that is usually done by a worker at the sugar mill.

Updating Shipping Route Data for the Heat Stress Risk Assessment (HSRA) Model

The current heat stress risk assessment (HSRA) model used when transporting livestock in ships relies on historical weather data for routes to port, but climatic conditions may vary. This project will deliver an updated data set of climatic conditions and variability on sailing routes to 63 ports, that will be fed into the HSRA model as it undergoes an upgrade.
