Sustainable food production

This theme takes a systems-based approach to delivering sustainable food production. Emerging innovations in pre-farm gate production include precision agriculture (e.g. in the application of fertilisers and pesticides), diagnostics (in crop and animal disease surveillance and treatment) and genomics (in plant and animal breeding and in understanding soil microbes and their contribution to soil function).
