Regional Internship in Applied Grains Research - information sheet


A regional internship offers graduate students one year training in applied grains research and development (R & D). The internship will be based in Clare, South Australia with the Hart Field-Site Group (HFSG). The intern will work with HFSG research manager on a daily basis, and collaborate with other researchers, industry, consultants and growers to deliver research projects in regional South Australia.

The HFSG conducts a large number of trials across the Mid-North and interns will contribute to research areas such as:

  •  Weed management and control
  • Soil fertility and crop nutrition
  • Crop entomology
  • Agronomy and seeding systems

The research options may be tailored to your specific interests. Research skills you will gain include trial design and management, sampling, statistical analysis of data and written and oral communication with growers and advisers. You will assist with the preparation of HFSG events (e.g. field days and workshops) and have the opportunity to network and attend industry events (e.g. GRDC updates).


This initiative has been developed by the South Australian Grains Industry Trust, HFSG and South Australian Research and Development Institute.

A new internship will be offered every year until 2021.
