Dr Terry Rose PhD(UWA), BScAgr My research focuses on the mineral nutrition of crop plants, with particular emphasis on tolerance to nutrient deficiency stress. This work involves plant uptake and partitioning of nutrients, and more recently has focussed on the transport of nutrients to the developing grain. My current research interests are: *Internal nutrient utilization efficiency in crops – what does it really mean and can we exploit genotypic differences? *How and where are nutrients loaded into developing grains, and what transporters are involved? *Rhizosphere processes in lowland rice production – how do efficient genotypes acquire phosphorus and zinc? *Abiotic stress tolerance traits in Australian native rice *Silicon uptake and phytolith formation in crops, focussing on rice Prior to undertaking a PhD, I worked as an extension agronomist with NSW Department of Agriculture in Wagga Wagga and then the Hunter Valley, and worked for a private agronomic company in the United Kingdom. From April 2010 until August 2011, I worked in plant biosecurity for Plant Health Australia, a not-for-profit company funded by industry and government based in Canberra.
