Improving the value & sustainability of Esperance port zone grain growers.

pro precagSEPWA was involved in a precision agriculture project led by the CSIRO in collaboration with the Department of Agriculture and Food. The state wide project looked at ways that precision agriculture (PA) can be adopted for farm efficiency gains via managing paddock and farm variability.

The project examines the benefits of managing farm inputs via precision agriculture as well as making better use of spatial data such as yield maps, topography and other soil survey methods. SEPWA's involvement in this project has now wound down, however the project will continue to be run by the CSIRO until June 2011

Duration: July 2008 - June 2011
