A webinar hosted by Greenlife Industry Australia (GIA) is set to introduce a new Smart Farming project to industry, which will showcase the success and benefits of embracing new technologies on-farm.
Funded under the National Landcare program through a Hort Innovation strategic levy funded project, the smart technology and remote sensing webinar will educate producers on how utilising smart communications technology can help improve on farm practices, resource management and business performance.
Date: Thursday, 22 July 2021
Time: 1pm – 1:40pm (AEST)
GIA along with Applied Horticultural Research, Hitachi, Freshcare, Growcom, AUSVEG, Australian Banana Growers Council and the Australian Macadamia Society have teamed up to deliver this project.
To help growers drive benefits from the latest smart technologies, this project will spotlight a series of on-site digital data monitoring points where the collected information is fed to and stored in a central computer and demonstrate how it can be utilised.
Facilitated by Smart Farming Project Officer, David Hunt, the webinar will also include video from the pilot ‘smart farm’ production nursery where the technology is currently being successfully trialled.
Register today to find out how this project could help enhance proactive decision making, improved production efficiencies, optimal labour uses and environmental performance within production nurseries.
The ‘Digital remote monitoring to improve horticulture’s environmental performance project’ (ST19024) has been funded by Hort Innovation using the nursery industry levy and funds from the Australian Government.
