The Waite Research Institute (WRI) stimulates and supports research and innovation across the University of Adelaide and its partners that builds capacity for Australia's agriculture, food and wine sectors.


The Waite Research Precinct hosts several R&D organisations, nodes and centres enabling synergies, critical mass and a rich network of collaborations.

Our research

Waite science has direct impact on the quality and resilience of some of our most important crops, on farming practices and on end product development.
