CRC for High Performance Soils

The CRC for High Performance Soils (Soil CRC) is bringing together scientists, industry and farmers to find practical solutions for Australia’s underperforming soils.

Underperforming agricultural soils cost Australian farmers billions of dollars in lost revenue each year.

The CRC aims to enable farmers to increase their productivity and profitability by providing them with knowledge and tools to improve the performance of their soils.

The Soil CRC is the biggest collaborative soil research effort in Australia’s history.

The approach to research is multi-disciplinary. The Cooperative Research Centre coordinates research across a range of disciplines including social science, economics, biology, chemistry, agronomy and soil science.

There are 39 participants that contribute $164 million to the Soil CRC through both cash and in-kind contributions.

The Soil CRC has funding until 2027.
