Showcase | Agriculture Victoria’s Smart Farms Bringing Together Tech and Data to Create New Opportunities in Horticulture

17 Apr 2024
Stream 1
Join Ian and Kieran from Agriculture Victoria Research as they take us through the latest work they have been doing in horticulture traceability as well as introducing some of the Hort Tech tools under development. For example, Cartographer is a mobile sensing platform to spatial map orchard parameters like fruit colour; and sensing fruit quality on a platform harvester.

The SmartFarms – located in Ellinbank, Hamilton, Horsham, Tatura and Mildura - bring together technologies and data to support smart information and new opportunities for agriculture. Each SmartFarm is a gateway to research, innovation and technology, and skills development for Victoria’s major agriculture industries.
