Facilities and equipment
Being based in Australia’s richest and most diverse agricultural region, our greatest research facility is the access to the industries on our doorstep. No-where else in Australia do researchers have such ready access to the range and size of industry partners as CQU has in its footprint region. The Institute for Future Farming Systems is also well equiped with equipment and facilities to support its agricultural researchers. The state-of-the-art Central Queensland Innovation and Research Precinct (CQIRP) houses dedicated laboratory spaces, animal handling facilities, glasshouse facilities, dedicated crop esearch areas and analytical equipment to support our staff. Partnerships with AgForce and the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries also give our researchers access to research farms in Rockhampton and Bundaberg.
