This Week’s Highlight: Grains Research opportunities

Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is an Australian research agency, whose primary purpose is to invest in research and development that creates enduring profitability for Australian grain growers. Research includes projects to deliver new and improved grain varieties, farming practices, technologies and capability to the Australian grains industry. The GRDC provides numerous opportunities for industry and academic participation through a continuous program of Requests for Tender (RFT) which for the most part are research focussed, but at times also includes a number of supporting functions to ensure effective operation of the organisation.

This week saw a large number of RFTs released that in addition to research topics also include the development of a guidance manual and a data analysis requirement.

Assessment of organic phosphorus sources: GRDC is seeking suppliers to determine the crop response value of phosphorus (P) from organic and inorganic fertiliser sources to better inform growers of the circumstance (price and level of crop response) under which each source of P is the lowest cost option. This will also require economic assessment of the cost of inorganic and organic P fertiliser, the assessment of P value at different transport costs scenarios and the biological response of grain production to each P source. This RFT closes on 30 Nov 21.

Mapping yield gap and yield variability in commercial pulse crops: This RFT seeks to create a better understanding of pulse crop potential yield targets and methods of correcting or avoiding downside production variability. It is envisaged this investment covers up to 30 months, with project planning commencing in January 2022 and concluding with a final report due in May 2024. The RFT closes 30 Nov 21.

Soil water modelling of stripper and draper header front stubbles: GRDC seeks to better understand how stripper front stubble may impact in a range of rainfall and soil type setting on conserved soil water and identify possible differences in water capture and storage for early sowing opportunities. This RFT closes 30 Nov 21.

Action learning on crop response to acid subsoil stratification and amelioration benefits: GRDC is seeking to confirm the 1990s concept which promoted rules of thumb of 2.5 tonnes/ha of lime every 10 years or liming rates just sufficient to remove aluminium toxicity which have been shown to be ineffective in addressing subsurface acidity. This RFT closes 30 Nov 21.

Farming Water – a technical manual: This investment seeks to develop a range of technical resources to promote greater understanding of water dynamics in grain cropping systems and how this knowledge can be used to guide on-farm agronomic decision making. This RFT closes 29 Nov 21.

Analytics for the Australian Grains Industry (AAGI): This approach to market is an request for Expressions of Interest initiating what may become a multi-stage procurement process. GRDC is seeking innovative solutions from industry in relation to this requirement. EOIs close 23 Dec 21.

Although published on Austender, it is important to note that details and associated documentation for all GRDC approaches to market are published on the GRDC website. Additionally, all applications must be submitted via the GRDC Grains Investment Portal – https://access.grdc.com.au
