$3 Million Research Facility for Wagga

The Grains Research and Development Corporation has awarded Charles Sturt University a $2.7 million GRDC Infrastructure Grant, as part of a $15 million program to build national research capacity.

Together with $300,000 dollars to be contributed by the University, the Wagga grant will see $3 million invested in building glasshouses and plant growth chambers, to boost research into crop productivity and weed science.

GRDC Managing Director Steve Jeffries says the state-of-the-art facility in Wagga is expected to improve the efficiency and productivity of crop research and weed science in Southern NSW, helping to fast-track new research outcomes to growers’ paddocks.
