More about CSIRO
Avaliable language options:
From responsive modelling to intuitive digital technologies, we're developing practical solutions for the agricultural community and industry.
CSIRO researchers are working to develop improved crop management techniques for maximum economic, environmental and social benefits.
Primary topic: Plant science
We are working with partners in Queensland to develop, test and demonstrate technology that can monitor and collect data about how cattle properties are running.
Primary topic: Sustainable farm management
Northern Australia’s beef herd comprises 12.5 million cattle and makes up 90 per cent of Australia’s live cattle exports. CSIRO has developed a series of tools to help improve the efficiency of the transport that keeps this industry moving.
Primary topic: Landscape management
We are working to develop, test and demonstrate the latest thermal remote sensing technology on an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) to identify the location of livestock in extensive rangelands.
Primary topic: Animal science
Remote monitoring of cattle body condition through various imaging technologies has the potential to improve the efficiency and cost effectiveness of livestock production systems.
Find out what’s beneath your feet with CSIRO’s first app, SoilMapp, making soil information accessible from your location.
Primary topic: Decision support tools
CSIRO and research partners working on the National Water Use Efficiency (WUE) Initiative have identified ways to improve yield through better WUE, in some cases by as much as 91 per cent.
We've been working with the Birchip Cropping Group (BCG) to develop and support Yield Prophet®, a web-based decision-support tool for grain growers. Yield Prophet® is built on the farming systems model Agricultural Production Systems Simulator (APSIM).
