The Graham Centre’s research in plant systems involves soil science, crop physiology, pasture production and utilisation, crop protection, weed science and management and technology.
We are particularly focused on the inter-relations between components of the farming system, such as crop-pasture rotations.
This pathway is lead by Professor Jim Pratley.
