Our work in biosecurity is diverse. From directly researching diseases in animals, to understanding fungus in soil, developing new breeds of disease-resistant plants, helping smallholder farmers meet food safety standards to access markets and assisting partner countries fight against the spread of animal and plant pests and diseases.

The Crops Program is built on two complementary and integrated themes of genetic and sustainable intensification and diversification.
The Soil and Land Management Program aims to help smallholders boost productivity, while ensuring soil and food security are achieved, through sustainable use of limited resources in a changing climate.
The Agribusiness Program includes research at all points along the agricultural, forestry, and fisheries value chain.
The Fisheries Program focuses on small-scale artisanal fisheries and low-technology aquaculture methods, and includes research on post-harvest processing and trade along the supply chain.
The Forestry Program contributes to economic development and natural resource conservation and rehabilitation.
The Horticulture Program focuses on increasing on-farm productivity, through integrated crop management, disease and pest control and improved post-harvest storage and management.
