CSIRO missions to help transform Australia’s agriculture sector

The Morrison Government is supporting efforts by the CSIRO – Australia’s national science agency – to help grow the agriculture sector and secure the long-term economic prosperity of our regional communities.

CSIRO has today launched three new “missions” that will see more than $150 million invested in key research and development collaborations that will tackle Australia’s biggest agriculture and food challenges.

The three missions are: Drought Resilience Mission; Trusted Agrifood Exports; and Future Protein

The three Missions are supported by $79 million from CSIRO, with combined contributions of $71 million from industry and government.
