GRDC spotlight shines on communicators.. Like Dr Conyers, the west's Dr Biddulph realises the value of being able to communicate with a wide audience and says the award inspires him to continue to talk openly and honestly with growers and industry "about where the research is up to, what we can adopt now and what it is likely to deliver in the future"... Knowledge of the subject and the audience also helps: "Working most of my career in a small, country-located field station with close contact with growers and industry helped me to speak the language and to gain people's trust through being honest, avoiding spin and seeing the world through growers' eyes."..

In 2011, Australian agriculture used a combined 1632 kt of N, P and K to manage soil nutritional constraints to production... Dr Mark Conyers is a Principal Research Scientist of NSW DPI (Wagga Wagga) and has over 30 years experience in soil nutritional chemistry in southern grains farming systems... Dr Conyers is one of several senior nutritional soil scientists around Australia in a similar situation, the retirement of which will substantially reduce the pool of expertise in this field for the entire Australian grains industry. This proposed investment will result in the appointment of a post-doctoral fellow that is jointly funded by GRDC and NSW DPI for the next 3 years (2013-2016) as an understudy to Dr Conyers and will result in a maintained capacity in the field of soil chemistry in relation to crop nutrition...
