Field Science Building - Berrimah Farm

The Berrimah Farm Science Precinct redevelopment project recently hit a major milestone with the opening of the Field Services Building.

The new Field Services Building will house livestock and plant research, industry development functions and post-harvest research facilities. The new laboratory facilities will create an epicentre of excellence in northern Australia for agricultural research, diagnostics, and pest and disease surveillance and monitoring. These facilities will provide additional capacity for biosecurity incursion response – strengthening the Department of Industry, Trade and Tourism, former Department of Primary Industry and Resources) reputation for the best clean, green produce underpinning our current domestic and export markets and providing further opportunities to establish the Territory as a major producer and exporter of food and fibre.

The Darwin-based Agriculture Division staff have officially moved into the new Field Services building, located at Gate 2. Previously housed in several separate buildings, the plant industries and livestock industry development groups can now be found in the one location. Contact details (phone numbers and email addresses) remain the same.
