The Australian climate can be extremely variable, which puts pressure on resources and forces farmers to be more diligent and innovative. Are there solutions that can assist in the management of your farm?
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a solution which can potentially help farmers to reduce costs, develop new business models and optimise profitability. An example in the 2017 edition of Australia’s Digital Pulse, the burgeoning ‘smart agriculture’ industry was highlighted, which promises to improve output and efficiency through the use of smart sensors and intelligent control systems. By 2050, it is expected that the average farm will produce 4.1 million data points per day thanks to IoT, and this data will be processed in real time to improve yields, make better predictions and reduce costs (ACS, September 2018).
Our partner Telstra has commissioned a survey which will be conducted by Kantar TNS who are an independent research organisation. The survey aims to understand farming challenges to help shape and develop better IoT solutions.
We hope you will participate and to thank you for doing this, Telstra will donate $5 to the Salvation Army for each person who completes the survey. Please click HERE to begin the survey.
