The scope of the centre was further expanded in 2009 through a partnership between The Mosaic Company and the Australian Grains Research and Development Corporation.
A five-year extension of the partnership agreement was signed in 2015 between the University and Mosaic. In 2020, the two partners agreed to continue their partnership for a further five-year period.
