The session will support you wherever you’re at in your data-journey. It will include how much data you need to collect and what type; the importance of astute data interpretation; and how the results can inform your decision-making.
By using data to accurately identify challenges and successes, you will be able to apply appropriate solutions – from implementing small-scale efficiency practises to utilising high-tech equipment – to achieve your individual goal.
Why should you attend?
- Farmers – are you looking to develop a more strategic approach to data generation and technology acquisition and how to embed it in your business – and how to gain actionable insights from YOUR data.
- Technology developers – is your technology in the hands of farmers already – or about to get there? Be inspired by the SMART farm and how to position your innovation to be part of a wider farm business strategy? And what is your data management approach – how can you build this into your business USP?
- Researchers – Understand the technology gaps, the role of inter-operability and gain insights into the practical on-farm reality of embedding a new tech – and all its data – in a commercial setting (or your research context)
- Policy-makers – what is needed for the future of on-farm data management? How can data be used fairly and equitably to help incentivise best practice?

The SMART farm features three networks across which a host of sensor technologies have been connected. These are reporting on everything from the usual soil, water and weather parameters, to “tree tech” (measuring water flow in plants), “bee-tech” (monitoring activities and productivity within bee hives) and a host of livestock and arable technologies. Hear first-hand advice from one of Australia’s leading test-beds for agri-tech about how to embed the data and the tech on farm.
