THE new Loxton Research Centre (LRC)
adds another volume of compelling evi-
dence of the power of the Riverland and
Mallee community when shoulders are put
to the wheel and the gifts of imagination,
energy and passion are combined with
attitudes of open mindedness, co-opera-
tion and ‘can do’.
The vision began more than seven
years ago in 2009 when it was blindingly
obvious the old LRC had run its race. It
had run out of puff.
Research activities and scientists had
been syphoned off as programs and pro-
jects were consolidated and absorbed into
larger research institutions including AWRI,
CSIRO and universities around the nation
where a true ‘centre of excellence’ could
be established and strengthened.
The LRC, as we had known it, was in
decline. It was tough for those still at the
coalface but it was inevitable.
The new imperative for all associated
with farming was that operational scale
had to be achieved in laboratories as well
as on-farm if our producers and scientific
institutions are to be globally competitive.
The question on everyone’s mind was....
There was plenty going on in the back-
ground. The irrigator community was pull-
ing together, building the case for South
Australian irrigators to be fairly recognised
by the MDB Authority for the decades of
responsible river management, licensing
restraint, water use efficiency and environ-
Riverland Wine, a tenant at the LRC
since 2007, was stitching together plans
and arguments for all the region’s pri-
mary producers to combine some of their
resources and transform the old LRC
into the Riverland and Mallee Primary
Producers Business Centre (RaMPP).
Then Federal Minister for Regional
Development Simon Crean visited in early
2012 and met with the planners. He
enthused but could do no more than com-
mend and congratulate.
He remarked: “If you can make it work
here in the Riverland and Mallee, it could
well become a model for regions around
Sentiment was positive. The broadacre
community had recently joined the plan-
ning group. There were sporadic bursts of
energy but the wheels fell off when it came
to sensible seed funding.
Most of the producers were still reeling
from the impact of the drought and a dec-
ade of difficult market conditions. RaMPP
But then in 2013 the MDB Plan was
finally revealed. South Australia’s leader-
ship in the battle to ‘save the Murray’
was rewarded. The SARMS program was
unveiled and the LRC was thrown a lifeline.
The new LRC is stunning; it’s world
class. The original building has been
re-skinned inside and out. It’s been gen-
erously and thoroughly rejuvenated. It’s
The opening ceremony was a triumph.
The ‘white elephant brigade’ was nowhere
to be seen.
Local, state and federal politicians all
expressed gratitude and admiration for
what the community had achieved. Backs
were slapped, the ribbon was cut and hun-
dreds of people came and saw and were
conquered. The ‘markets’ were another
revelation. Smiles all round.
The RaMPP opportunity is now more
alive than ever. Seed funding will still be
a challenge but the concept is well estab-
lished and the facility is operational. The
old centre is pumping.
The ‘C’ words are key words in all
of this: Consolidation, Collaboration,
Community and Can do. The incentive is
now there for all primary producers to col-
laborate on common issues and make it
work for every horticulturist, agriculturist
and value-add enterprise in the Riverland

Anne Duncan, global knowledge and
people development manager at Wine
Australia, is overseeing the 2017 program
and says a leadership drought is one of
the biggest risks the sector faces.
“The international and domestic wine
markets are highly competitive and that’s
not going to change. To ensure our sec-
tor’s future success we need the next
generation of leaders to be ready to take
“ We need leaders who can be cata-
lysts for innovation, who can adapt to the
inevitable changes that our sector will
face in the future, and who can drive the
continual evolution of the Australian wine
story, be they winemakers, grapegrowers,
export managers or researchers.”
Since its inception in 2006 there have
been 91 Future Leaders alumni from the
grape and wine community: winemakers,
grapegrowers and viticulturists, business
managers and marketers, suppliers and
researchers, who have demonstrated the
strong leadership and vision required to
position Australia as a fine wine leader on
the global stage.
Among them are RWGA chair Sheridan
Alm, elected committee member Ashley
Ratcliff and current Australian Vignerons
CEO Andrew Weeks.
