Australia is currently a net food exporting country and about 70% of the food produced is exported. The presentation will cover our current food production, population growth and the impact of climate change on food production and export. In order to maintain Australia’s food production capacity in 2050, we must innovate, adopt and reform. We need to bring existing knowledge into use; build the capacity of institutions to undertake strategic research, development and extension; increase R, D & E investment; conduct research that meets the needs of agriculture and ensure research has impact and undertake microeconomic reform.
