Council of Grain Grower Organisations Ltd - COGGO is a public company formed at the initiative of a group of Western Australian grain growers originally concerned at the inadequate resources being allocated to plant breeding and biotechnology in Western Australia, and who wanted to have a greater say in breeding crop varieties for Western Australian grain growers. Since December 2011 COGGO is now a general R&D funder. COGGO now facilitates grants to applicants who can demonstrate an innovative idea which may benefit the grain industry in Western Australia and/or improve the profitability of grain growers in part or all of Western Australia. www.coggo.net.au
