The Australian Plant Phenomics Facility (APPF) is a world-leading infrastructure facility that underpins innovative plant phenomics research to accelerate the development of new and improved crops, healthier food and more sustainable agricultural practice.
The APPF is a national facility, available to all Australian and international plant scientists, offering access to infrastructure that is not available at this scale or breadth in the public sectors anywhere else in the world. Our facilities are based around automated image analysis of the phenotypic characteristics of extensive germplasm collections and large breeding, mapping and mutant populations. We exploit recent advances in robotics, imaging and computing to enable sensitive, high throughput analyses to be made of plant growth and function. New technologies are continually being developed to ensure we remain at the international forefront of plant science.
What we offer
- Sophisticated controlled environments for growing plants across a range of climatic conditions
- Glasshouse automation technologies to study large populations of plants rapidly and efficiently
- Leading-edge digital imaging technologies and sophisticated software to measure plant characteristics and their performance in real time
- The capacity to ‘scale up’ plant performance measurements from the glasshouse to the field
- A national focus for scientists to collaborate on key biological and agricultural research problems
- A unique and integrated system for the rapid capture of genetic resource information and its shared use for plant science and agriculture, both within Australia and internationally
- High level consultation and expertise in plant phenomics including project design, statistics, automated imaging and image analysis
- Expertise in data architecture, visualisation and management

The grains industry plays a vital role in Australia’s economy, representing 24 percent of total agricultural exports.
The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) supports the industry through investing in research, development and extension (RD&E) to create enduring profitability for Australian grain growers.
The GRDC invests over $198 million in around 700 RD&E initiatives to create enduring profitability for Australian grain growers across a broad range of research areas – from molecular biology to farming systems. Within their carefully balanced portfolio is a range of investments, from long-term, high risk, ‘blue sky’ research to short-term, outcome-focused applied research at the local level. The GRDC’s investments deliver results and aim to continually break new ground for growers.
GRDC is working to ensure Australian grain growers have:
• better practices, developed faster
• access to superior varieties that enable them to effectively compete in global markets
• new products and services (both on and off farm) to assist growers to effectively compete in global grain markets
• the awareness and capacity to optimize adoption of grains research outputs
The Agribusiness Association of Australia was established by four university lecturers who saw the need for an agribusiness connection between the universities and industry. Agribusiness Australia’s inclusive industry approach enables our industry to be a coherent association, so we can command respect for our objective and evidence based platforms and positions. Our mantra is to advocate, be inclusive and spread knowledge for the sole aim of advancing Agribusiness for the national good.
When Australia has a unified agribusiness sector the community and country gains the financial and cultural value this opportunity offers. The community will be more educated and therefore make logical fact based decisions about their food and fibre. Our industry will have a greater opportunity to be proud of what we all do and have control of its own destiny. Through collaboration our members will have gained a non-political advocacy voice for their cause creating new business opportunities and greater knowledge both within and outside of the sector.
