Dr Blanchard, a researcher and teacher at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga and Director of the Functional Grains Centre based there, is deputy chair of the GRDC Southern Regional Panel, which identifies cropping constraints and opportunities and directs research priorities to benefit grain growers... "I have had a real passion for grains research for most of my life and for me this involvement with the GRDC panel was really an opportunity for me to have some input into the direction of research in Australia," Dr Blanchard said... With a PhD in molecular biology and an honours degree in applied science, Dr Blanchard typically looks at how grain quality affects end products for consumers, and his research ranges from identifying antioxidant properties in faba beans to the suitability of Australian-grown chickpeas for overseas markets...

Broadacre grain production in Australia has export opportunities on its doorstep underpinning its long-term future, but the sector will need to meet the challenge of its dependence on imported inputs that will eventually become increasingly expensive... Prof Kingwell said that although Australia faced increased competition from emerging grain exporters, it was well placed to service emerging markets in Asia... Prof Kingwell said Australia will benefit from this increased demand probably by specialising in human consumption grains while other countries focus on serving the increased need for feed grain and fodder...

McFadyen advocates practical research to combat challenges.. "I grew up on the family farm, and have kept my boots dusty for 16 years as a private and now corporate on-farm agronomist and I have to say the challenges and opportunities across both sides of our industry are not dissimilar... "The panel has no one important role, we need to be the glue between all the elements of our essential RD&E to ensure the GRDC charter is met, and that our research can become a tool in the shed for the growers."..
