Precision Agriculture Research and Application in Australasia
In 1997, the Australian Centre for Precision Agriculture began conducting a one-day Symposium on Precision Agriculture Research and Application in Australasia. The Symposium is always a relaxed and enjoyable means of discussing the progress and direction of Precision Agriculture in Australasia.
It is aimed at providing an insight into, and inspiration from, the work being undertaken to develop and apply PA in a wide range of agricultural industries. Research and government institutions along with farmers, commercial suppliers, advisors and anyone with an interest in the future of agriculture are welcome to participate.
This makes it a truly industry-wide forum for PA in Australasia.
As the interest in PA continues to rise nationally (and within the Australasian region) we are keen to capture the enthusiasm being generated in many new and established organisations, associations and groups.
This event is now conducted as a collaboration between the Precision Agriculture Laboratory and SPAA Precision Agriculture Australia.
2016 Symposium on PA Research and Application in Australasia
The 19th Symposium on PA in Australasia will be held at the City Golf Club in Toowoomba, Queensland on the 12th and 13th September 2016.
This is one of the longest running PA gatherings in the world, and this year's event will again feature a program of exciting and enlightening presentations on PA applied across a range of agricultural industries.
Topics covered will include:
- PA innovation, trials and applications in broadacre cropping
- GNSS developments
- Precision Livestock Management
- Mobile Software Applications
- Farm-wide communications
- Autonomous machines and implements
- The Future
