This is supported by recent figures from the International Grains Council, which has calculated global trade will need to increase at a rate of two per cent a year (production permitting) to cater for increasing demand from both established and emerging markets in the Middle East, Asia and Africa... Ms Watkins says the critical issue for Australia is that production in countries such as Ukraine and Kazakhstan can be increased by opening up new farmland... Ms Watkins says the global outlook means the much-touted opportunities for Australian grain are real, but they hinge on science and innovation that increase production on the growers' side of the farmgate, and on her side help to drive an increasingly efficient and competitive supply chain...

But I believe my mind was sufficiently open to face the reality of what I was to investigate and the principle that we could adapt if there is the need to change Distance usually prevents Australian producers involved in the Livestock export trade a full appreciation of all fundamentals steering the future direction of their industry and individual businesses... There is also a demand for the direct purchase of live animals particularly in the Muslim festivals... The factors strongly indicate there will always be a demand for the supply of live animals to the many nations without the capacity to produce livestock themselves...

The principal platform from which GRDC-funded research is driven is through our five-year Strategic Research & Development Plan, the latest being the 2012-17 program launched in August... The details of the plan have been reported previously and can be viewed on the GRDC website (http://strategicplan2012.grdc.com.au)... The stakeholder briefings allowed questions and discussions on how the GRDC, researchers and growers need to communicate and collaborate to meet not just the ongoing production challenges, but also some far-reaching changes to research support and also the supply chain that delivers the harvest to our customers...

Just like growers, Ms Watkins says one of the main traits being sought by millers is yield - in their case, more flour per tonne of grain... Road transport has become the main method of moving grain from country receival sites to ports, although Ms Watkins argues that rail is still the most efficient way to move grain over longer distances... "We are investing in faster receival equipment, but it remains logical for growers to want to store on-farm to either avoid bottlenecks by bringing their grain into the system later, or to market their own grain from the farm...

Plant breeding companies around the world are working to lift the yields and imbue crops, particularly cereals, with more environmentally robust traits, but scientists say it is a long, slow, process... "We've targeted these kind of traits in crops like corn and we hope to work on them in wheat but they take decades to develop," he said... Mr Gardner said that in wheat, Monsanto was working to develop technologies that would help increase yields and improve nitrogen use efficiency...
