CSA research aims to equip farmers and agri-business with the knowledge, tools and options to manage existing and future on-farm risk and support sustainable, long-term investment choices despite a variable and changing climate. Our research is undertaken to sustain Australian agriculture and service agri-businesses looking to grow markets and obtain advantage from low emission differentiated products.

The Group contributes to three primary impact areas of CSIRO Agriculture and Food with the following visions:

  • Improving agriculture’s footprint: Australian agriculture’s output value, market share, market access and access to capital are improved through demonstrated environmental and ethical credentials.
  • Resilient Farming Systems: Australian agricultural production systems increase in value, support communities, improve natural capital and minimise impact of risks.
  • Secure Food Systems: Sustainable and resilient agri-food systems enhance health and prosperity in a changing global environment.
