Biographical entry Davidson, James (1932 - )

Agricultural scientist, Agronomist and Plant breeder


James Davidson is an agronomist expert in soil profiles and pasture management. He is known for developing new breeds of wheat that were designed to adapt to the previously un-profitable high rainfall zone. The new breeds, including Lawson, Paterson, Gordon, Tennant, Brennan and Dennis varieties were more resistant to diseases, including the previously devastating Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus.
