• • • Tech dials into individual crop data. CSIRO has been developing technologies
“MOST of us have these devices, what could this device possibly tell you while you are wondering around observing and making agronomic recommendations about the status of that paddock and the season?”
That was the thought-provoking question from CSIRO Agriculture and Food Farming Systems Science group leader Dr Roger Lawes on the possibility of smart phones when talking at the Grains Research and Development Corporation’s Research Updates, Perth, two week ago.
CSIRO has been developing technologies to understand the WA Wheatbelt. These products mean farmers will be able to quickly and seamlessly understand and monitor a crop in real time like never before.
