Prof. Graeme Hammer’s research capabilities focus on the major cereal crops: sorghum, maize and wheat.

Graeme has expertise in crop ecophysiology and modelling, which he uses to investigate traits and management systems that have the potential to deliver productivity gains in water-limited production environments.

He leads the UQ link to the APSIM Initiative, which is responsible for the on-going development of the APSIM modelling software platform, used internationally.

His research team aims to enhance profitability and sustainability of cereal and legume cropping systems in tropical and sub-tropical environments through the integration of digital agriculture technologies and capabilities a molecular level, whole plant, and production systems, with their frontier research in climate modelling, prediction agriculture, genetics and farming systems to provide tomorrow’s decision support tools today.
