An integrated multi-disciplinary approach to breeding, agronomy and entomology, led by the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) and mungbean breeder Col Douglas is helping this ‘niche’ crop punch above its weight. It is an approach that is allowing the research sector to build capacity, while accessing research expertise for mungbean improvement beyond what would be possible based solely on Australian public sector research investment.
