For more than a century, the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) has played a vital role in enabling the production and protection of food and fibre for Queenslanders and the world. From the land to the sea. From the bush to the city.

Agri-Science Queensland is part of the Agriculture business group within DAF and operates in a changing business landscape that is becoming more volatile, uncertain, and complex. The way Agri-Science Queensland operates and responds to these challenges requires flexibility and strong sector-wide leadership.

Agri-Science Queensland is committed to pioneering change within the agricultural sector. By leveraging advanced research, development, extension and leadership, their efforts support the safety, affordability, reliability, sustainability, and nutritional value of Queensland’s agricultural goods. This commitment extends not only to local communities but also to consumers worldwide.
