We have seen much of the traditional plant-breeding role of state agriculture departments replaced by private companies... Mace and Suntop were bred by Australian Grain Technologies (a company in which the GRDC is a partner) and LongReach Scout and LongReach Spitfire both come from LongReach, the first fully private wheat-breeding company started in Australia in 2002... The above are just a few examples, and there are similar advances being made in other crops, such as a superior new malting barley, Bass , from InterGrain, a plant-breeding collaboration between the GRDC, the WA Government (including the Department of Agriculture and Food, WA), and international companies Monsanto and Syngenta...

The new position offers a great opportunity to make an even bigger difference to the lives of Australian grain growers... Apple's innovation is driven by its R&D department in Cupertino, California, where it employs 12,000 and invests more than US$4 billion annually in R&D. Imagine if each grain grower had to individually try to achieve the same innovation... In order to adapt to the modern grains industry and respond to growers' needs, the GRDC is in the process of making some major changes which include: a restructure of the research portfolio to ensure an appropriate balance in delivering short, medium as well as long-term benefits to growers; relocating staff from Canberra to regional offices to strengthen the GRDC's local and regional connections, which benefits delivery; and improvements in the way we seek direction from growers on what are their most important research priorities...
