Murnong Farming, SW Victoria - mixed farming
Aerial photographs and satellite imagery captured over the Murnong Farming property in 2005 kick started the PA journey for farm manager Josh Walter. The imagery opened Josh's eyes to the high degree of spatial variability in crop performance across the property, allowing him to view the effects of soil compaction, fence line removal (paddock history effects), paddock obstacles and waterlogging.
Precision Agriculture in the Rice Industry - Project for the Rural Industry Research and Development Corporation (Australian Federal Government)
Over the past three years, the team at Precision Agriculture has researched the implementation of precision agriculture in the rice industry on behalf of the Federal Government's Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation.
Findings from the project have been released steadily and are starting to reshape the way rice is farmed in this country, identifying significant opportunity to improve productivity and profitability across the industry.
Key to this are implementing precision agriculture techniques, including variable rate application of crop inputs, soil conditioning applications and water management methods.
