DAQ00131 project activities aimed to: conserve tropical grains germplasm under long-term storage conditions; acquire new germplasm with unique traits of interest to clients (particularly to breeding programs); the maintenance of germplasm through viability testing and regeneration; and to increase awareness of the availability of tropical grains germplasm to clients... New project goals were to facilitate the creation of the national grains Genetic Resources Centre (GRC) and included training GRC staff in the use of GRIN-Global (GG), a software management system, so that grains data can be nationalised across Australia; and contribute to the action plan development for the relocation of tropical grains germplasm to both Tamworth and Horsham... The significant consultation and communication that the Biloela GRC staff undertook during the project have secured the conservation of two globally unique germplasm sets within the next project period...

Leading manager urges productivity action.. They are in overdrive to lift productivity, which across the grains sector has started to slip from the annual 2.1 per_cent recorded between 1978 and 2007... While agriculture has consistently made greater productivity gains than the mining, construction and retail sectors, Mr Daniel believes the lack of investment in the past 20 years in R&D, particularly in the wool sector (annual productivity from 1978 and 2007 for wool/sheep was 0.3 per cent) was now catching up with agriculture...
