CY O’Connor ERADE Village Foundation

Murdoch University (MU), the C Y O’Connor ERADE Village Foundation (CYOEVF) and Tillbrook Melaleuka Group (TMG) founded the Centre for Innovation in Agriculture (CIA) to provide agricultural Education, Research and Development, Employment (with training) in the Peel region of Western Australia. 

There has been widespread support for the Centre, including funding from the Australian Government through its Building Better Regions Fund and a Cooperative Research Centre grant.

The Centre’s unique skills and program fill an important niche role and the CYOEV Foundation invites your support to continue its development and maintenance.


Education is more important than ever.  New information in agriculture will be merged with the discoveries by generations of farmers in the Peel region.  The Centre provides a weekly forum including national and international delegates.  Research retreats are held every quarter.

Research & Development

Professor Roger Dawkins and Dr Sally Lloyd direct the research and development team at the Centre for Innovation in Agriculture. They have successfully achieved a number of patents through their unique work in genetics.


With the help of new funding, employment and training will increase but we invite further participation.
