Notable programs set to benefit from SAGIT support include a three-year study into variety selection and weed management options for genetically modified canola.

Research to improve the management of herbicide resistant barley grass will also receive a funding boost, while a look at the implications of green hydrogen technology and production for SA grain growers represents another timely research project.

SAGIT chairman Max Young said continued research was essential to the long-term sustainability of SA's grain industry.

"No other state has an organisation dedicated to supporting state-based grains research that is funded by the growers," he said.

"Our unique position allows us to focus on the specific issues, problems and solutions that deliver real benefits for South Australian grain production."

SAGIT is funded by a voluntary grower levy of 30 cents a harvested tonne.
