We are looking for ideas in the following areas:

  • New technologies that reduce labour costs and/or improve the efficiency of repetitive tasks such as seeding, fertilizing, spraying and harvesting (including automation and robotics)

  • Maintain and/or improve the price of Australian grain through differentiation based on: advanced genetics, functionality, food safety and traceability, sustainability of production, reduced downgrading, new and/or enhanced grain classification processes, and optimal management of biosecurity issues
