2020-21 marked the third year under the CRDC Strategic RD&E Plan 2018–23. During this year, Australian growers & the Government co-invested $16.9 million through CRDC into cotton RD&E, across 188 projects and in collaboration with 85 research partners.
CRDC and the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) have facilitated two new Business Research and Innovation Initiatives to address some of the biggest challenges facing Australian agriculture.
RT @cottonfarmgirl: 👏👏👏 This 4 year research project has been an absolute game changer for growers in Central QLD.
Congrats to the team.
@DAFQld @CSIRO This is a seriously impactful project for #cotton growers in Central QLD. It's helped them overcome #climate challenges by changing their cotton season, resulting in yield increases of 40%! The project's benefit-cost ratio is 17.1 - a $17.10 benefit for every $1 invested... 2/3 https://t.co/D1ci5i8LFN
