Advances in modern science and technology and better understanding of biosystem processes underpin the efficient and effective commercial exploitation of crops for the biotechnological, industrial, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and renewable energy and fibre markets. These are experiencing rapid growth worldwide, driven by the underlying desires of consumers for better health, improved quality of life, the use of more natural products and concerns about the sustainability of non-renewable resources. These key drivers have the potential to transform the composition of agricultural industries and farming systems practices in Australia in the years to come.
