Currently working to improve the connectivity of science with industry and landholders to increase the impact of investments in developing soil science knowledge and practical solutions for the agricultural industry. Bringing together soil scientists, industry and students to identify and develop priority research areas and knowledge gaps, helps to integrate our core science research with application, development, validation and delivery. Strategic development of State and National RD&E priorities for soils, particularly in the grains industry is also a continued focus.
- Measurement of soil microbial processes and organic carbon.
- Soil-plant interactions and management solutions.
- Crop physiology, production agronomy and environmental limitations to plant production lends itself to understanding the complexities of soil-plant-microbial interactions and the impact of on-farm management on soil function and quality.
- Mid-infrared analysis for soil
