More about this podcast

The Australian Grains Genebank (AGG) is the centrepiece of grain crop genetic resources for the Australian grains industry.

Since it's opening in 2014, it has been a partnership between the Victorian Government (Agriculture Victoria) and GRDC. An additional $30M will support digital innovation and connectivity to international genebanks, improve the operational function, and establish new long term seed storage, laboratories and work areas.

Join the AGG leader Dr Sally Norton and plant pathologist Dr Joshua Fanning discuss the scope of the genebank and how it delivers for grain growers.
