ARC Research Hub for Sustainable Crop Protection
This project incorporates the Cotton Research & Development Corporation’s involvement in the multi-partner ARC Research Hub for Sustainable Crop Protection. The Hub aims to develop and commercialise an innovative biological alternative to chemical fungicides targeting economically significant diseases of broadacre and horticultural crops. It addresses industry challenges of fungicide resistance, chemical residues in food, off-target effects, and environmental harm. It builds on the 'BioClay’ platform to deliver pathogen targeting RNA using clay particles as a non-genetically modified crop protection tool.
