This research project focuses on new fertiliser technology with plant-growth-promoting rhizobacteria and adaptive-release organic fertiliser for tropical agriculture and horticulture (sugarcane, avocado, macadamia). The project forms part of a large Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) Project on ‘Eco-friendly fertilisers for sustainable farming’. PhD candidates will collaborate with fertiliser industry and Queensland Government partners.
