PDS: Improved Pasture Management Systems

This project aims to improve the pasture management systems implemented in the upper north of South Australia, by promoting better pasture options that improve the mixed farming enterprise; and demonstrating that an improved understanding of Food On Offer, including feed budgeting and the use of remote sensing pasture assessment tools, will improve overall productivity, profitability and sustainability.

Impacts of COVID-19 on the Australian Seafood Industry: Extending the assessment to prepare for uncertain futures

In March 2021 the FRDC published an initial rapid assessment of the impacts of COVID-19 on the Australian seafood industry from January - June 2020, that considered direct and indirect effects of disruption to seafood production, supply chains and markets during the initial period of the pandemic, and the availability of data to support rapid assessment. This project aims to produce a more comprehensive follow-up Impact Assessment Report, that will inform the development of a guideline to assess the economic and social effects of large-scale, multi-level risks to fisheries and aquaculture in the future.

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.

National Bee Pest Surveillance Program: Transition Program

This project will continue the delivery of a national surveillance program for 13 pests (mites and beetles) and pest bees that could carry parasites or cause damage to honey-bee and pollinator-dependent industries in Australia. It is designed to ensure the early detection of high-priority pest incursions, which provides the best opportunity for successful pest eradication.

Overcoming propagule supply bottlenecks for seaweed production

Asparagopsis taxiformis, a red seaweed, seems to be the most effective species of macroalgae to reduce methane production in Australian livestock. To support the Australian livestock sector to reduce its emissions footprint by adding it to animal feed, there is an urgent need and significant commercial incentive to rapidly develop next-generation ways to propagate, farm and process Asparagopsis taxiformis at scale. This project will develop micropropagation tools for seaweed farming. By using plant tissue in small amounts, micropropagation can produce large numbers of disease-free plants in a short period, using small spaces.

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.
