AgriFutures Australia

At AgriFutures Australia, our purpose is to invest in research and development that is adopted by, and assists, rural industries to be productive, profitable, and sustainable.


We are guided by an ambition to be known as an organization that places our people, our rural industries, and regional communities at the heart of everything we do.


Our vision is to grow the long-term prosperity of Australian rural industries. In practical terms, this means:

  • Initiatives that attract capable people into careers in agriculture, build the capability of future rural leaders, and support change makers and thought leaders;
  • Research and analysis to understand and address important issues on the horizon for Australian agriculture;
  • Research and development for established industries that do not have their own Research & Development Corporation (RDC), including the rice, chicken meat, honey bee and pollination, thoroughbred horse, pasture seeds, export fodder, ginger, and tea tree oil industries;
  • Research and development to accelerate the establishment and expansion of new rural industries, such as deer, buffalo, kangaroo, and camel milk.


Our approach

As a future-thinking organization, AgriFutures Australia not only tackles the rural challenges and opportunities we face today, but unearths the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow.

We place people at the centre of everything we do. We listen, connect, and collaborate with emerging leaders in agriculture, industry bodies, other RDCs, and government. Building on the strong foundations laid over the last three decades, we confidently set our focus on the future.
