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.

Innovative nursery management solutions to sustainably manage root disease, improve nursery utilization, and enhance resilience and productivity of planted pines

Root-borne diseases are increasingly affecting tree production nurseries, lowering productivity and profitability. This project will improve nursery management by defining the right balance of fertilizer, fungicide and microbial inoculum to break the disease cycle, and use field trials to refine treatments to improve establishment and resilience post-planting.

Identifying new resistance genes for Panama Tropical Race 4

This project will identify new genetic material associated with resistance to the banana disease Panama Tropical Race 4, with the aim of developing a range of molecular markers. These will be used to screen germplasm in international breeding programs to identify lines and varieties that will ultimately be used by Australian banana growers.

PDS: Feeding Grain on Grass

This project will fund a demonstration site for producers in central west and northern New South Wales, to demonstrate the benefits of using forage and grain feed tests to develop a grain ration to supplement livestock that are grazing forage crops. Supplementary feeding increases liveweight gain and enables improved production efficiency and increased profitability.

Pasture Monitoring in the Rangelands

The Producer Demonstration Site (PDS) funded by this project aims to demonstrate that routine monitoring and management of key pasture species can boost the productivity of rangelands livestock businesses. The project will engage 5 core producers and 15 observer producers responsible for managing 700,000ha, 140,000 sheep and 2,500 cattle.

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.

Profitable Grazing Systems Package Development - Editing and Design

Profitable Grazing Systems (PGS) takes small groups of like-minded producers who want to improve their whole-farm performance and matches them with a deliverer who builds their knowledge, skills and experience through hands-on training. This project funds final stage editing, design and proofreading of the latest Profitable Grazing Systems packages and associated materials, along with updates to the Profitable Grazing Systems producer and deliverer guidebooks. All editing and design will be consistent with Meat & Livestock Australia's (MLA) branding and style guidelines.

Testing Tropicals - NSW Southern Slopes

This project will fund a Producer Demonstration Site (PDS) featuring tropical and sub-tropical pasture species in production systems on the southern slopes of New South Wales. Producers will be able to compare these species to current summer feed options (e.g. lucerne and summer-active perennials), and work out what management adaptations would be necessary to successfully incorporate these species.
