Honouring the maternal pedigree
Another Australian agtech company SmartShepherd has just been named #225  in the world's top 500 agritechnologies enabling livestock breeders to collect maternal pedigree quickly and cost effectively. Maternal pedigree is the key to unlocking the genetic potential of a farmer’s herd or flock, significant productivity gains can be achieved by tracking which animals produce profitable offspring. Additionally, there are numerous animal welfare issues that can only be addressed by knowing an animal’s mothering ability. SmartShepherd works with any grazing livestock, including sheep, cattle and goats.

Genetic edge for fast growing wheat
Farmers and researchers working together take an idea and turn it into commercial benefit.  CSIRO research geneticist Dr Greg Rebetzke demonstrates the development of short-season (100 to 120-day) wheat in a response to growers' need for more options in the face of a changing climate. The idea is that by getting the right genetics into the pre-breeding program; genetics for improved vigour, better weed competitiveness, reduced soil evaporation and faster growth, all combine to reduce a five-to-six-month crop duration down to three or four months.  For more information see GRDC's website www.grdc.com.au
