Rivers of gold to drown drought

Charles Sturt U at Wagga has $8m from the feds for a “drought resilience adoption and innovation hub.” So does Uni Tasmania’s Institute of Agriculture – both were announced yesterday

They follow Uni Southern Queensland (CMM Monday).

There are five more to be announced, for regions around the country which generally have a university to host.

Except perhaps south-west WA, where Edith Cowan U does not teach ag or environment science at its Bunbury campus nor UWA at Albany.
