The Waite Research Institute (WRI) brings together researchers from a range of disciplines including plant biology, genetics, oenology and viticulture, soil sciences, agronomy, clinical nutrition and agricultural economics. They will pool their expertise to find solutions to major problems including meeting the challenge of ensuring global food security and providing Australia's agricultural, wine and food industries with innovative research-led developments.
