Our diverse food and farming research ranges from studying the make-up of our crops and animals to the methods and food processing technologies we develop to produce healthier, safer and more sustainable food.
From developing premium feeds right through to gene technologies, we're helping Australian farmers breed outstanding produce.
When we understand the risks to a crop, we can modify the species to protect them from specific threats.
From responsive modelling to intuitive digital technologies, we're developing practical solutions for the agricultural community and industry.
We've developed a range of tools and techniques to answer today's challenges and plan for the future, including gene technology, digital modelling and region-specific strategies.
From carp, rabbits and ants through the full catalogue of weeds, we're using a range of methods to tackle invasive pests.
We're working with industry to develop a range of methods and technology which help food processing.
A discovery by CSIRO scientists is central to the Australian Poll Gene Marker test, which is helping Australian cattle breeders select the best breeding cattle for their herds. It may also help the industry end the painful practice of dehorning beef cattle.
We research how the microscopic structure of food and how food is processed affect the quality of everyday food products. This work helps support the food industry develop an innovative and healthier supply of manufactured foods and ingredients to Australian consumers and export markets.
