Improving drought resilience and on farm decision making through a localised weather station network and monitoring equipment.

This project is designed to support producers throughout their agtech journey by being a gateway and example piece of how monitoring technologies can be used to enhance decision making, reduce drought, pest and disease risk and in turn improve production. Provide living examples of agtech in the field through demonstration sites which are aimed at getting growers comfortable and confident with the technology. On top of this there will be the technical support provided for interpretation of data, decision making and maintenance. Overall this project looks to support growers in combatting the barriers that have previously stood in their way when it comes to agtech adoption and create a pathway for further growth into the use of agtech within their systems.
