Save the date: Forthside Field Day, TAS
The Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA) invites you to a family friendly day from 10am-3pm (AEDT) on Wednesday 3 November, at the Forthside Vegetable Research Facility to view the research trials, hear from researchers and industry innovators, and discover the smart technology in use on the farm.
The Forthside Vegetable Research Facility – based within the major vegetable cropping region of north-west Tasmania – is an invaluable site for a diverse range of vegetable and allied crop research trials.
The farm showcases SMARTFarm technology, where on-farm devices provide a proof-of-concept for farmers to see first-hand how new technologies can help to create efficiencies and improve environmental outcomes.
There will be presentations, tours, demonstrations, and an opportunity to network.
