The South Australian Grain Industry Trust Fund (SAGIT) was established in 1991, to administer the voluntary research levy contributed by SA grain growers. SAGIT has backed research for South Australian grain growers for 25 years. To read case studies of SAGIT’s past research projects, click here.
On average, SAGIT invests $1.4 million a year in supporting research crucial to advancing the grain industry. Research and development is supported in a range of areas of grain growing, farming systems, soil management, harvesting, storage, processing and marketing and for dissemination of technical information to growers.
No other state has a research fund supported by growers for state-based, grains industry research. South Australia is the envy of other states!
