Science, innovation and collaboration to benefit the world
We provide state-of-the-art plant phenotyping tools and expertise to enable academic and commercial plant scientists, from Australia and around the world, address complex problems in plant and agricultural science. Research at the APPF is leading to the development of new and improved crops, healthier food, more sustainable agricultural practices and improved maintenance and regeneration of biodiversity in the face of declining arable land and the challenges of climate variation.
Each APPF node has unique specialised facilities that interlink to provide a complementary, seamless service to users. A “research hotel” approach provides opportunities for more distantly placed researchers to utilise the facilities, either in person or remotely, through engagement of APPF staff, while mobile equipment is available for field deployment anywhere in Australia.
