growag.com website launched
Farmers, researchers and businesses can now see levy funded research from all the Research and Development Corporations in one location.
A centralised platform that showcases Australia’s agrifood innovation opportunities, success stories, and a comprehensive database of Australia’s current agrifood research projects has today been launched in partnership with the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) and all of Australia’s 15 Research and Development Corporations (RDCs).
Acting as a gateway to the world, growAG. showcases Australia’s world leading agricultural research, unique technologies and commercialisation opportunities on the one, new publicly available platform, growag.com.
Farmers can now see their levy funded research projects from across the RDC network in one location using filters to search across the different commodities. All the information on the platform is free to access and allows farmers, investors, corporates, startups, researchers, industry, government and universities from Australia and around the world to locate information and opportunities to deliver innovation back to the farm and the food supply-chain.
Minister for Agriculture, Drought and Emergency Management David Littleproud said the platform would drive investment and commercialisation.
One of the collaboration partners, Cotton Research Development Corporation (CRDC), Executive Director Dr Ian Taylor says “With increased transparency, growAG. highlights the key people and organisations working within the Australian rural innovation ecosystem and allows more strategic investment in research projects, opportunities to collaborate, and the ability to identify and decrease the risk of duplication in research investment”.
