Put science behind decisions for farm profitability.. Proficient and timely agronomic management is one of the key drivers of crop profitability and there are a myriad of tools available to help growers make informed choices on crop and varietal selection, crop rotation, plant available water capacity and soil/plant nutrition while managing the risks of pests and diseases... The practical tools are complemented by a wealth of statistical data which is continuously gathered, analysed and interpreted through projects like the Statistics for the Australian Grain Industry (SAGI) project supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)...

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...
