Recognising industry opportunities and the existing expertise within the University, The UWA Institute of Agriculture supports members to further develop research themes in the following areas:
This theme focuses on the contribution of livestock industries to solving global food supply. Grazing systems need to be productive, profitable and sustainable, which requires a multidisciplinary approach to ensure the interaction between genotype, environment and management are optimised.
This theme focuses on meeting the food needs of an increasing world population which requires improved efficiencies in irrigated agriculture and better use of rainfall and finite water resources. The focus is on water balance and irrigation modelling, and technology exchange through industry collaboration and engagement.
