Are you a Vegetable Levy payer who is practicing precision agriculture such as controlled traffic farming; crop sensing/imagery; soil mapping; variable rate inputs; or yield monitoring?

Are you thinking of implementing any of the above in your vegetable growing business, and are you prepared to share your ideas with the wider vegetable industry?

A grower study tour of South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania from 4-11 September will give you the opportunity to visit case study farms and share experiences in getting the most out of precision ag technologies for your vegetable growing business. This tour is part of Adoption of Precision Systems Technology in Vegetable Production (VG16009), a strategic levy investment under the Hort Innovation Vegetable Fund.

Flights, accommodation, coach travel and attendance at the Society for Precision Agriculture Australia (SPAA) 2019 Symposium in Launceston, Tasmania are included and covered by the tour.
