This is the winter edition of Rural Diversity, RIRDC’s corporate newsletter. In this edition we welcome Professor Daniela Stehlik and Craig Burns to RIRDC. We also look at pollination, an area in which we work closely with the RIRDC Pollination R&D Advisory Committee to identify R&D strategies that are needed to secure the future of pollination in Australia.We also meet the winner and runner-up of the 2010 RIRDC Rural Women’s Award, Sue Middleton and Alana Johnson; preview an upcoming report on trade negotiations; and go on the road with the RIRDC-sponsored participant of the Australian Rural Leadership Program, Catherine Marriot. We also look at a study into a possible link between tea tree oil and the treatment of skin cancers and profile a major report released at the national ABARE conference on the wide range of new rural industries.
