AbstractBSES has provided the research and extension services to the Ord River Irrigation Area (ORIA) sugar industry under a cooperative agreement with the WA Dept of Agriculture and Food since 2003.

A new contract was signed to provide continued Plant breeding and plant pathology services to WA Dept of Agriculture and Food to continue plant-breeding trials, inspect sugarcane plots for diseases and pests and to advise WA Dept of Agriculture and Food on maintenance of sugarcane varieties so they could be available for potential new sugar industries in the ORIA.
