Dr. Nicole Robinson
Nicole’s research interests span natural and agricultural systems dissecting how plants, microbes and soils interact with the aim for improved nutrient use efficiency to maximise production and reduce off-site environmental impacts.
A major research focus has been characterising nitrogen use efficiency in sugarcane across broad germplasm and the impact of nitrogen source availability and plant nitrogen use.
Current projects with sugar and cotton industry focus on soil health and nutrient cycling and the impact of crop management and resultant effects on productivity and stability of yield.
