In December 2014, the University and the Department entered into a broadacre grains RD&E partnership to build synergies, critical mass and research capacity to enhance the delivery to Queensland's cropping industries. The partnership focused on specific fields of wheat pathology, winter crop nematology, summer grain pathology, agricultural engineering and agricultural systems modelling.
From this time, the BACI partnership has proven to be an efficient and effective research alliance for the Queensland broadacre cropping industries.
BACI's vision and purpose
Our vision is to provide strategic leadership to ensure Queensland Crop and Food Science RD&E is world class and positions Queensland broadacre cropping and food industries for the future.
Our purpose is to enhance Queensland's broadacre cropping industry capability and capacity for sustainable broadacre crop industries.
