The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) will change its focus in barley crop investment, giving the commercial sector access to important genetic material developed by the outgoing southern barley breeding program, to enable the best possible advancements in variety development... Dr Betzner said the key focus for GRDC now was to work with the University of Adelaide to make sure that the right licensing framework is put into place to determine access rights and pave the way for the best possible advancements in variety traits... We hope to be in a position to call for expressions of interest in the near future."..

In a keynote speech, Dr Tim Lust from the United Sorghum Checkoff Program said R&D had become "big business" in the US following a major shift from public to private investment in recent years... Dr Lust said that annual R&D expenditure for maize, soybeans, wheat and cotton in the US was currently estimated to be about US$12 billion (A$12.7 billion)... Overall, Dr Lust believed climatic extremes posed a major challenge to R&D, with drought and flood conditions in the past few years leading many US growers to rethink the cost-benefits of new multi-trait varieties...

Australia's wheat breeding is geared to tackle long-term agronomic challenges like yield, drought, frost, disease resistance and salinity, and to deliver commercial performing varieties to Australia's wheat growers... GRDC's investment in pre-breeding research is about discovering and validating novel genes and traits, and delivering these traits non-exclusively to commercial wheat breeding programs... The focus is on key traits that will make the greatest difference to Australian wheat growers, like improved tolerance to drought, frost and salinity, and disease resistance (for example, rust, crown rot and nematodes)...
