The Grains Research Development Corporation (GRDC) is seeking to invest in research, development and education to breach significant gaps in the true economically attainable yield potential of winter and summer grain crops in an environment where water supply (i.e. irrigation) can be manipulated to realise yields not possible in traditionally dryland production systems.

The four investments are:

PROC-9175813: Development and validation of agronomic practices to realise the genetic potential of grain crops grown under a high yield potential, irrigated environment in the northern and southern regions

  • Details of the tender and the application process, can be found here

PROC-9175814: Facilitated action learning groups to support profitable irrigated farming systems in the northern and southern regions

  • Details of the tender and the application process, can be found here 

PROC-9175815: Increasing yield potential of irrigated crops in the northern and southern regions through novel amelioration techniques that improve soil structure

  • Details of the tender and the application process, can be found here

PROC-9175816: Optimising farm scale returns from irrigated grains: maximising dollar return per megalitre of water

  • Details of the tender and the application process, can be found here

Closing date/further information

If you have any questions, contact the GRDC via email northern@grdc.com.au prior to 5pm AEDT on Thursday, February 7, 2019. 

The closing date for applications is 2pm on AEDT Thursday, February 14, 2019.
