We are seeking a suitably qualified organisation, individual or group of organisations to collaborate with the CRCNA in the development of a Northern broadacre cropping industry situation analysis, inclusive of grains, oil and fodder products.

The scope of the work will identify key challenges and opportunities facing the Northern broadacre cropping industry, explore potential solutions and identify the most strategic research projects for further investment. This includes but is not limited to infrastructure, policy, investment, environmental, production, knowledge, training and human capital gaps and the research or alternative solutions to address them.

This document will guide a systematic and collaborative approach to prioritising, delivering, monitoring and evaluating research conducted by the CRCNA for Northern broadacre cropping.

Extensive consultation across all sectors of the industry will be undertaken, involving producers, industry, researchers and government departments.

The process and final report is intended to inform the CRCNA strategic research investments, assist with coordination of investment across the Northern Australian broadacre cropping sector and improve strategic alignment across the research, policy and service delivery arms of the sector.

The CRCNA supports industry-led collaborations between industry, researchers and the community.
