Future Farm Industries Cooperative Research Centre

Future Farm Industries Cooperative Research Centre

 

Profitable Perennials™ for Australian landscapes The Future Farm Industries (FFI) CRC is a unique co-investment between meat, grains and wool industry research corporations, the Landmark agribusiness company, and the combined research power of CSIRO, six State agencies and four universities. This partnership will transform dryland agriculture in southern Australia through the combined strategies of innovative research and development, education and training, and commercialisation and utilisation.The goal of FFI CRC is to build agriculture’s capacity to generate an estimated $1.36 billion of wealth in ways that suit Australia’s unique environment, and which will prosper in the long term.
The key to this industry transformation is Profitable Perennials™; the application of perennial plant technologies to result in:

  • Intensification and productivity growth in existing industries through the development and adoption of innovative new farming systems
  • New regional industries through development of, and investment in, woody crop production on farms
  • Sustainable land use changes reducing impacts of dryland salinity, conserving biodiversity and water resources, and adapted to subsoil constraints and climatic variability.

The scope for innovative solutions based on the increased use of Profitable Perennials™ has been demonstrated by FFI CRC’s predecessor, the CRC for Plant-based Management of Dryland Salinity (CRC Salinity) and its partner organisations.

Land Water & Wool

Land Water & Wool

 

With $20 million invested over five years, Land, Water & Wool was the wool industry’s most significant investment ever in natural resource management research and development. It was an initiative of Australian Wool Innovation Limited (AWI) in partnership with Land & Water Australia.
Land, Water & Wool placed the wool industry at the forefront of investment in environmental sustainability in a commercial context, investing in research, development and extension targeted at the development and adoption of commercial, productive solutions to key natural resource management issues facing Australian wool producers. The program tapped into a decade of natural resource management research and development by Land & Water Australia and built on the wool industry's own experience and research. It was backed by state primary industries and environment departments, CSIRO, universities and regional Natural Resource Management (catchment) bodies. Meat & Livestock Australia and the CRC for Salinity added another $10 million, as well as generous access to staff and research facilities.

The programs objectives were:

  • To identify key natural resource management issues from producers' perspectives and understand their perceptions, needs, priorities and practices.
  • To increase woolgrowers’ awareness of and motivation to tackle natural resource management issues.
  • To provide woolgrowers with the knowledge and practical tools to address key natural resource management issues through productive and profitable solutions.
  • To increase the capacity of woolgrowers to apply natural resource management innovations within their commercial enterprise.

Land, Water & Wool tackled topics that are at the heart of profitable and sustainable land management for wool production in Australia:

  • living with dryland salinity;
  • sustaining native vegetation and biodiversity;
  • managing our waterways and floodplains; maintaining the rangelands used for pastoral production;
  • developing tools to help woolgrowers manage our variable climate; and exploring what the industry’s future could be in the next 30 years.

Land and Water

Land & Water Australia

Land & Water Australia was responsible for research and development aimed at the productive and sustainable management of the land, water and vegetation resources underpinning Australia's primary industries and regional communities.

It funded Australia’s best and brightest researchers, Land & Water Australia possessed a wealth of knowledge on our natural resources. Its mission was to provide national leadership in generating knowledge, informing debate and inspiring innovation and action in sustainable natural resource management.

Working with Australian Wool Innovation Limited, Land & Water Australia provided woolgrowers both access to existing information and the opportunity to guide new research. Land, Water & Wool actively demonstrated this approach by investing in research that focused on the key natural resource management issues facing woolgrowers, to help them achieve sustainable wool production.
