Claire Welsh is a CSIRO Agriculture and Food research affiliate and PhD candidate with the Sydney Institute of Agriculture at the University of Sydney.
As an agronomist experienced in production, advisory and agtech commercial development, Claire is passionate about developing sustainable farming systems and exploiting relevant digital technologies and data science to maximise resource use efficiencies and profitability.
Claire’s current research, funded by the CRDC, is centred on leveraging novel PGR chemistry and sensing technologies to develop new agronomic management strategies for rain grown and limited water cotton systems, which achieve increased crop efficiencies and optimised yield outcomes by building crop resilience to abiotic stress.
