In the 2015-2016 financial year, SRA will invest $17.5 million in research and development activities for the Australian sugarcane industry.
The investment is funded primarily by the statutory Sugarcane Levy and is supported by the Commonwealth Government matching funds of approximately $5.5 million and the Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries investment of $4.15 million.
This investment is in addition to SRA's ongoing investment in plant breeding and biosecurity research that underpins the sustainability of the Australian sugar industry. This includes $4 million in new projects funded by the SRA contestable funding pool.
