Opportunities to improve labour use efficiency through automation and improved management practices (RB21003)

Key research provider: The Growth Drivers

What's it all about?

This investment is identifying opportunities to improve labour use efficiency in the rubus industry through automation and improved management practices. At the project's conclusion, a range of materials will be made available to growers that describe possible solutions appropriate for the Australian rubus industry.

As a first step, the research team will conduct stakeholder interviews, site visits, producer surveys and a 'time and motion study' to understand current management practices. This will assist them in identifying and prioritising opportunities around labour. Then, a global technology scan will be conducted to explore potential solutions that could be implemented in Australia.
