Welcome to the GRDC Investments pilot. It contains a selection of our RD&E investment portfolio. Let us know what you think!

GRDC Code: UOQ1905-009RTX
Post-doctoral Fellowship: Understanding P dynamics and bioavailability in alkaline clay soils aligned to UQ00082.

This investment will use the large amount of current data on phosphorous utilisation to develop an interpretative framework that quantifies the key process interactions and how they influence phosphorous use efficiency and crop growth/yield across different environments. Identified gaps in current knowledge will be the subject of targeted experimentation with a focus on deriving algorithms to link environmental variables with crop phosphorous acquisition and grain yields.
