Graincast™With CSIRO’s expertise in grain forecasting, climate, remote sensing, data management, software engineering, social innovation and more, we built Australia's first real-time grain forecast platform for the grain industry: Graincast™.
Sensors and software for cropping and pastures
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.
Smart breeding with phenomics
Phenomics tools offer non-destructive and high throughput methods to quantify crop performance in response to the environment.
AI-led crop forecasting global
PARTNER RELEASE - Recognised by Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, as one of its breakthrough innovations in artificial intelligence (AI) over the past five years, Graincast™ technology rapidly and remotely predicts hectares planted for over 20 plus crops, as well as forecasts yield for wheat, barley and canola – with more crop types to come.
CSIRO’s GrazPlan consists of three commercially available decision support tools to help farmers make decisions about their farm management, principally in grazing enterprises. Grazplan can also help farm advisors, industry organisations, agribusiness, banks and insurance companies.
Internet connected livestock
We're working with agtech company, Ceres Tag, to develop next-generation ear tags to track and monitor livestock, unlocking invaluable data for the livestock industry.
eGrazor cattle measurement
The livestock sector is under mounting pressure to produce more from a smaller environmental footprint. Accurate measurement of pasture intake using the eGrazor technology could hold the key to more efficient cattle production.
Helping sugarcane growers
Our app, 1622™, uses sensors, satellites and smart analytics to help sugarcane farmers manage nitrogen fertiliser, without affecting profits, with flow-on benefits for the health of the Great Barrier Reef.
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.
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.
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.
We’ve solved a farming challenge using artificial intelligence to identify the boundary of every individual paddock in Australia's grain growing region from space – around 1.7 million of them.
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.
Augmented reality in aquaculture
We’re using popular gaming platforms, sensor technologies and next-generation data interaction techniques to help Australian prawn farmers increase efficiency and production while reducing risk.
New digital Ag research station to help future proof our farms
Drones, remote monitoring and advanced data analytics will provide scientists unprecedented accuracy in studying crops and farming systems at the new Boorowa Agriculture Research Station, opened by Australia’s national science agency CSIRO today.
In an Australian breakthrough, we are working with the Bureau of Meteorology to transform weather forecast data and tailor it for farmers and agribusiness in a way they've never had before. Our Weather Together shop is now open for business.
