QAAFI's Centre for Crop Science (CCS) integrates strong disciplinary capabilities in major research focus areas to target improved crops, crop protection systems, and sustainable production systems in tropical and sub-tropical environments.

CCS provides innovative plant-focused research for ongoing agricultural and food innovation by pursuit of excellence in plant science at molecular, whole plant, and production system levels for the beenfit of plant industries.

The centre also acts as a vehicle for enhanced collaboration between UQ and the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries in plant science of strategic importance, and maintains strong linkages with rural and manufacturing industries. CCS also has a strong focus on postgraduate training and is committed to the next generation of plant scientists.
