About With support from Curtin University and GRDC, we're helping to reduce the impact of crop disease with genetics, fungicide and agronomy research.
Centre for Crop and Disease Management cover
Mission Reducing the cost of crop disease
Description The Centre for Crop and Disease Management (CCDM) is a national research centre co-supported by Curtin University and the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), investing $100 million over a five-year period.

Launched in 2014, the centre’s major aim is to reduce the economic impact of crop disease for Australian growers via three main research themes:

Fungicide resistance: by developing the necessary tools and strategies for industry to prevent and minimise its occurence and impact.
Molecular genetics: by providing breeders with genetic tools to breed cereal, oilseed and pulse varieties with improved disease resistance.
Farming systems: by developing economical and adoptable Integrated Disease Management (IDM) strategies for managing the evolution of resistance to fungicides.
