Sustainable practices and agricultural innovation are vital in preserving our environment for future generations. In Australia, research institutions and agricultural innovators have been at the forefront of developing groundbreaking advancements in crop production for many years.

However, it’s important to note that new crop protection products must undergo rigorous testing during development before being applied commercially. Through the registration process involving thorough scientific evaluation, these products’ safety and efficacy are assessed, and limits of use are determined to protect Australia’s trade and the health and safety of people, animals, and the environment.

Applied Field research companies like AgXtra conduct extensive field research trials to evaluate the efficacy and safety of agricultural innovations. The results generated from these trials determine if a product is ready for registration and commercial application or if further trials are required.

Applied field research is a dynamic and exciting field that helps to shape the productivity, profitability, and sustainability of the Australian agricultural sector. Contrary to popular belief, careers in this field are far from confined to a laboratory, with daily schedules entailing a diverse range of activities, including fieldwork, laboratory assessments, and report writing.
