Australian adults are not eating enough dairy. Some are concerned dairy products have high greenhouse gas emissions. New research shows healthier diets with lower GHG emissions can include dairy.
Understanding climate change impacts on mangoes in the Northern Territory
As temperatures increase in the Northern Territory, timing and triggers for important stages of the mango production cycle might be impacted. A team of climate researchers and horticulturalists is working together to understand what some of these changes may look like so the industry can prepare.
One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish: Species recognition software for sustainable fisheries
Technology adapted from the security industry is being taken to the oceans to monitor fishing operations, manage the seafood supply chain and ensure the sustainability of our fisheries.
Phosphorus: a finite resource essential for life, critical for agriculture and food security
Strategic use of phosphorus fertilisers can ensure higher crop yields. High yields minimise the amount of land devoted to food production, maximise the use of scarce rainfall and help keep food supplies stable and relatively cheap. Getting the balance right is important in an increasingly crowded world.
A warning for wine lovers: climate change is messing with your favourite tipple’s timing
A plant-growth-regulating spray might be the solution for vineyards affected by heatwaves.
Fingerprinting wine to prevent fraud
Wine fraud is a threat to Australia’s wine industry, but a technique to fingerprint wine could help protect the industry.
