Sugar Research Australia Limited

Sugar Research Australia (SRA) invests in and manages a portfolio of research, development and extension (RD&E) projects that drive productivity, profitability and sustainability for the Australian sugarcane industry.

An industry-owned company, we are funded by a statutory levy paid by grower and milling businesses. The SRA member and levy payers’ stakeholder investment is also directly supported by Australian Government matching funds and grants from the Queensland Government and other bodies.

SRA fosters an environment that encourages new initiatives and rewards innovation. We tackle industry issues by identifying the research that needs to be carried out, conducting robust and scientifically vigorous research programs that produce sound results and extending these findings so that adoptable outcomes can be implemented on-farm and at the mill for the benefit of the industry.
