Consultation on the GRDC's discussion paper is open until 5:00 pm Friday 16 Feburary 2018 (AEDT)

The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) has been delivering outcomes from grains research, development and extension (RD&E) on behalf of Australia’s grains growers and the Australian Government for 25 years.

GRDC has commenced development of the Strategic Research, Development and Extension Plan for 2018–23 (RD&E Plan). The discussion paper sets out the objectives of the corporation’s investment in Research Development and Extension (RD&E) over the next five years to 2023 to create enduring profitability for Australian grain growers.

To deliver on this commitment we need the input of grain growers and industry stakeholders from right across the research, extension, production and value chain pathways. GRDC asks that you take the time to read the paper and provide comment through our easy to use online survey, via email at or social media using the handle @theGRDC and #GRDC2023.

Consultation plan

As detailed in this plan, a series of engagement activities will be undertaken throughout 2017 and 2018 seeking stakeholder input and feedback on the Strategic Research, Development and Extension Plan for 2018–23.
