Agro-ecosystem resilience

Successful solutions

  • Developed bio-climate models: identify areas at risk from invasive pests, areas for biocontrol strategies; assess the impacts of climate change on integrated crop management. Conducted a synthesis and model of plant-pest-weather interactions.
  • Developed best management practices that reduce costs and pesticide use, enhance performance, and provide decision support for industry.
  • Enhanced knowledge of interactions between farm practices and biogeochemical processes that control nutrient cycling, influence crop and soil quality, greenhouse gas (GHG) production and transform/transport contaminants.
  • Developed Integrated Pest Management (IPM) toolkit to manage wheat midge and alternative cropping systems to reduce chemical use by farmers.
