Ongoing project

Driving ag-tech adoption across Australia (AS20007)

Key research provider: Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries

What’s it all about?

This investment is transforming the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries research facility at Gatton into a ‘Smart Farm’ that can be used to showcase technology to the horticulture sector. The Smart Farm will provide growers with the opportunity to interact with ag-tech innovations in a real world environment and to better understand the costs and benefits of technology adoption.

Smart Farm will provide multiple sites (research and community farms) for technology providers to showcase the potential of their technology in real world environments, with industry providing feedback and direction on its development.

The investment will facilitate a series of open house events to ensure the Smart Farm benefits the broader national industry and research community.
