Why should we preserve trees in our cities and towns? Can we grow healthy crops in sandy soils? How important are insects to agriculture? Does the yeast a winemaker chooses really affect the wine produced? Can we really turn food waste into usable new products? REGISTER NOW for Waite in the Spotlight 2018
Congratulations to Dr Jacqui McRae (AWRI) and Associate Professor Kerry Wilkinson (The University of Adelaide) on being named 2018 Australian Women in Wine Award finalists in the Researcher of the Year category!
The State Government has officially unveiled 17 new and improved varieties of apricots specifically bred at SARDI to maximise returns to growers.
Grapevine trunk disease is estimated to cost the Australian wine sector millions of dollars in lost production each year, but now grapegrowers have a new tool to better manage its impact
We are seeking people aged 18 years or older to participate in focus groups discussing insects as food. We’re keen to hear from people with diverse opinions – not only people who think they could eat insects, but people who think eating insects is disgusting!
Welcome to the Waite
This website is the online portal to the Waite Campus, the largest concentration of agricultural research and teaching expertise 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.
