Identifying Value Proposition for Agtech Adoption

This project explored the value of agtech and digital innovation in five industries (ginger, rice, export fodder, hemp, and jackfruit). It mapped producer needs and opportunities for technologies, that are both in-use and under-development, to examine costs and benefits for producers and the supply chain. A strategic roadmap to drive technology adoption and digital transformation was co-designed with industry input.

On-line measurement of intramuscular fat in hot lamb carcases

An imaging needle using an established medical technology has established a positive proof-of-concept to measure Intra Muscular Fat (IMF) percentage in an un-cut lamb carcase. Intramuscular fat contributes positively to the juiciness and flavour of lamb and is a useful indicator of eating quality. This project will assist in refining the pre-commercial prototype probe under development, validate the precision and accuracy of IMF measurement and release a prototype device to an early-adopter industry partner.

Preliminary evaluation of electro stunning technology for farmed Barramundi

The use of humane harvest methods for fish and livestock is increasingly important to consumers and producers. The Australian Barramundi Farmers Association (ABFA) identified electro-stunning as a technology of interest to optimise the welfare of the fish while maintaining product quality. This project reviewed all available information and made recommendations to help shape the direction of future R&D into electro-stunning and its suitability for the barramundi industry.
