The Ricegrowers’ Association of Australia and rice food company SunRice today welcomed the Coalition’s announcement of an additional $4m in R&D funding for rice production in Northern Australia.

Funded through the government’s Rural R&D for Profit program, the money will contribute towards critical research into the rice varieties and agronomic practices that will underpin a sustainable northern rice industry.

Ricegrowers’ Association of Australia Executive Director Andrew Bomm said that this funding will benefit rice growers across Australia.
