Feasibility study into opportunities for high-technology horticulture production in urban environments (HA19005)

Key research provider: RM Consulting Group

What's it all about?

This project is exploring the potential of emerging production technologies for application in the Australian urban landscape. The outcomes of the study will identify future priorities for research, development and extension activities into high technology horticulture in urban areas.

The project team will identify a range of high technology systems and assess their applicability to urban Australia by considering factors such as regulation and planning, farm input and waste, and supply chain logistics. This will include new technologies such as robotics, automation, big data, IoT and genomics.
