The ARC Research Hub for Driving Farming Productivity and Disease Prevention

The ARC Research Hub for Driving Farming Productivity and Disease Prevention is an Australian research centre for industrial transformation of smart agriculture funded by Federal Government (Australian Research Council Industrial Transformation Research Program) and industry.

The Hub, hosted by Griffith University, brings together world-class, multi-disciplinary teams of scientists from Griffith University, The University of Sydney, The University of Adelaide, Monash University, The University of Western Australia, Deakin University and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).

Together, in collaboration with our industry partners, we create innovative technologies to vastly improve the quality, speed and cost-effectiveness of farming production, and deliver highvalue returns of research and development activities. The Hub's mission is to significantly increase farm production and disease prevention ability through advancing and transferring new artificial intelligence technologies into industrial deployment.

The Hub combines world-leading capabilities in machine vision, machine learning, software quality control, engineering, biology, and farming industries to invent and adopt technologies to build more intelligent farming systems that can automatically determine what goal to achieve in a dynamic environment and the most efficient plan to achieve it. The outcomes of the Hub enable higher farming efficiency, lower production costs and lower disease risks, giving the Australian industry a great advantage in global competition, and creating new business opportunities.
