Our research areas
With 100 per cent of Australian cotton grown from CSIRO varieties, we're adding value at all levels of the Australian cotton industry, including molecular biology, plant breeding, crop management and post-harvest processing.
For over 60 years we’ve been supporting Australia’s grain industry to improve yields, quality and management, and to combat disease.
We're developing novel plant-based oils to provide more efficient and sustainable oils for industrial and nutritional uses.
We're delivering safe, nutritious and novel horticulture ingredients and products from farm to fork to underpin Australia's $11 billion horticulture industry.
Pathogens, pests & weeds
Plants are under threat from pathogens, pests and weeds that impact their health and growth. Our work is investigating methods to protect our native plants and agricultural crops from these threats.
We're working with farmers to develop new tools and management practices to increase profitability and productivity, reduce resource use and maintain ecosystem health.
Our efforts are focused on improving sugar yields and sustainability to help support Australia's $1.5 billion sugar industry.
