Grassroots Grant: Fostering crop RD&E collaboration and leadership in Northern Australia

This project will engage with crop producers across northern Australia to determine the most appropriate structure and arrangements for establishing an industry-based leadership and coordination group to prioritise and drive crop research and development in northern Western Australia, the Northern Territory and northern Queensland. Such a group could support the various producer organisations and potentially geographically isolated individual farmers in accessing resources to deliver local, regional and interstate crop R&D priorities, and act as the ‘go to’ body for R&D Corporations, government agencies and other investors seeking to support agricultural production in northern Australia.
