Digital technologies for dynamic management of disease, stress and yield (TG16003)
What’s it all about?
Through this project, the table grape levy is being invested into a component of research that will feed into a larger Australian Government Rural R&D for Profit initiative being led by Wine Australia. The broader project is developing innovative processes and precision technologies for the grape- and cotton-growing industries. The introduction of new digital technologies will provide for more accurate yield forecasts, earlier disease detection, and better management decisions about crop condition and nutrient levels. The project will ultimately extend the use of the technology by trialling equipment on grower properties and demonstrating the benefits through the use of extension networks.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Table Grape Fund
