CRDC Strategic RD&E Plan 2018-23
CRDC's Strategic RD&E Plan is CRDC’s primary RD&E planning document and provides a high-level overview of CRDC’s strategic direction for the next five years. CRDC's vision is to power the success of Australian cotton through world-leading RD&E, and the Plan sets out how this will be achieved: the goals, investment approach, and planned impact. The Plan is ambitious: over the course of the five years, CRDC aims to contribute to creating $2 billion in additional gross value of cotton production through investments in RD&E. These investment will be split across the five key focus areas of the Plan: increasing productivity and profitability on Australian cotton farms; improving cotton farming sustainability and value chain competitiveness; building the adaptive capacity of the Australian cotton industry; strengthening partnerships and adoption; and driving RD&E impact.
