The SRA Strategic Plan 2021 – 2026 guides our actions in pursuit of our vision.
The current plan, redeveloped in April 2021, followed an extensive consultation process in 2020 involving grower and miller levy payers, government investors, industry stakeholders, SRA staff, research and extension providers and RDC peers.
Our strategy is anchored by five strategic pillars all with specific deliverables and metrics:
Evolve SRA to keep pace with the changing industry landscape by developing a capable, engaged and safe workforce, and a lean, agile and entrepreneurial organisation with an agile and efficient cost-base.
Design a focussed, balanced and collaborative portfolio of RD&E investments and initiatives that deliver tangible solutions and options to advance the productivity, sustainability, profitability and long-term growth prospects for the Australian sugarcane industry.
Accelerate innovation in variety development to offer varieties that consistently underpin the success of the industry’s current and future product objectives, crop production and protection while lowering development costs and shortening cycle times.
Take our research work and investments to the next level by securing investors and funding and extracting commercial value from our intellectual property, research capability, facilities and strategic partnerships.
