Industry-Focused Innovation Projects

In 2022, the Australian Government provided the SW WA Hub with $2.5 million to enable it to expand its remit beyond drought under the Agricultural Innovation Hubs Program. A total of 10 exciting and diverse projects were rolled out, with focus areas ranging from paddock-level carbon benchmarking, through to drone-mounted grazing monitoring for the southern rangelands and improved vineyard floor management. These projects were led by external stakeholders and funded by the Australian Government’s Agricultural Innovation Hubs Program, with support from the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) and initiated through the South-West WA Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub.

As per GGA’s Innovation Manager, Joanne Wisdom, “The GGA’s innovation mindset centres around aligning research, development, extension and adoption with the practical needs of the agricultural sector. We address grower-led challenges by bringing grower groups, farmers, researchers, policy makers and industry experts together to co-design solutions that transcend traditional boundaries. This strategic alignment ensures that innovation is not confined to laboratories but translates seamlessly into on-the-ground practices. By promoting sustainable, resilient, and adaptive agricultural practices, we continue to support the pursuit of a more robust and future-ready state.”
