Our Agriculture and Food team is helping Australian farmers and industry improve productivity and sustainability.
We work with livestock farmers and allied industries to improve their productivity, profitability and sustainability through better livestock breeds and management practices.
Agriculture of the future will be digitally integrated at all stages of production, from understanding genetics to transport logistics. We are using our expertise in digital innovation and agriculture to improve decision making for farmers, agribusiness, policy-makers and researchers.
Our aquaculture research is undertaken with commercial partners and fosters the development of quality products such as healthy, genetically-superior animals raised on efficient, sustainable feeds.
Our expertise in food science helps the Australian food industry compete in domestic and global markets and make food products for Australian consumers that are safe, sustainable and taste great.
The future world demand for food will place huge pressure on global food systems.
We're helping cropping farmers more profitably and sustainably feed and clothe Australia and our export markets. We do this by helping improve plant breeds, better manage increasingly scarce resources such as water, and keep pests and diseases at bay.
We've come a long way since farming began in Australia. In this short video, we show how CSIRO is at the forefront of innovation in the agriculture and food sectors, and working towards meeting the challenges of the future.
