Our smart agriculture research for drought resilience
Adaptive water management
A water dashboard developed as part of the Sense-T program in Tasmania delivers real-time data to Tasmanian farmers to support irrigation and environmental sustainability.
Chameleon water sensor
We have developed an accessible system for the world's most vulnerable farmers that notifies them of their crop's soil water levels, and helps them make decisions that significantly boost their crop yields.
For the first time, Australian farmers can forecast grain yield at the touch of a button, thanks to our smart phone app, Graincast™, an Australian first.
Our LOOC-C ('look see’) app will help farmers and land managers discover possible carbon projects for their land and assess whether they can participate profitably in greenhouse gas mitigation and maximise the benefits to the land from carbon markets.
Our precision agriculture research is addressing key challenges in a range of farming systems, including viticulture, broadacre cropping, dairy and sugar farming. We're working with industry to develop and refine tools to assess, monitor and redress environmental and economic risks associated with agricultural practices.
We have developed an environmentally-friendly, sprayable biodegradable polymer membrane product that can help farmers produce more during harvest, on the same land area, while using less water, nutrients and agrochemicals.
Using our new WaterWise technology, for the first time, growers can see in real time the water stress of their crop and can predict their crops' future water needs.
