The Agricultural Biotechnology Council of Australia is an industry initiative established to increase public awareness of, and encourage informed debate and decision-making about, gene technology. The initiative is supported by a number of agricultural sectors and organisations all working to ensure the Australian farming sector can appropriately access and adopt this technology for the benefit of Australian agriculture.

GRDC is investing in research to increase understanding and research capacity for developing agronomic methods that can lead to the production of grains with higher nutritional benefit. Using instruments at the X-ray fluorescence microscopy beamline, crop scientists can investigate the concentrations and distribution of micronutrients accumulated in dozens of grain samples in a relatively short timeframe.
