In February & March 2021 the grower group alliance in partnership with the following grower groups, ran a series of introductory Precision Agriculture (PA) workshops.
Yuna Farming Improvement Group
Lakes Information & Farming Technology
Fitzgerald Biosphere Group
West Midlands Group
Bruce Rock LCDC
Mingenew Irwin Group
The workshops were highly rated and included local growers sharing their experience (the good, the bad, and the ugly), economic examples, data layers to identify and manage variability, and a look at software options. Based on participants feedback at the introductory workshop, planning has commenced for the follow-up workshops running from July-September 2021. Dates and workshop details to be announced shortly.
