Welcome to the Waite
This website is the online portal to the Waite Campus, the largest agricultural research and teaching precinct in the Southern Hemisphere. Established in 1924 and located at Urrbrae in Adelaide, South Australia, ‘The Waite’ is a co-located partnership of 15 complementary organisations and centres engaged in world-class Research and Development in plant, agricultural, food, wine and natural resources science.
In an increasingly food-insecure world with serious climate and economic challenges facing us, the vision of Peter Waite, to harness science in support of agricultural productivity, has never been more important or relevant.
The Waite is a world-renowned brand in agricultural research and education, and a leading centre of Australian research capability in wine, grains, soil and plant breeding.
The aim of this website is to bring together in one place the relevant information, including key contacts and links, from across the organisations based at the Waite Campus for our various stakeholder groups. We trust you will find it useful.
