Grains Research Foundation

The Grains Research Foundation aims to engage Queensland Grain Growers in developing the Northern Grains Industry by encouraging participation in research, development and extension priority setting. 

The Foundation is particularly focused on achieving its objectives through the investment in youth, evident through its 'From One Grain Project'.  The project aims to develop the industry involvement of the younger set of Queensland grain growers through Social Media to encourage their participation in the Research Advisory Committees.  An annual study tour for Queensland grain growers also exposes them to how research identification, prioritisation and funding occurs overseas to allow them to better understand the direction needed for the future of the Australian grains industry.
