Developing the people of today into the workforce of tomorrow.


The horticultural industry is diverse and central to the national economy. In Sunraysia alone, Horticulture is forecast to double over the next 10+ years. Despite job prospects increasing in the sector, jobs in farming aren’t what they used to be.
 
While traditional labour skills are still required to operate farms today, we are now at a crossroads between industrial-era farming and SMART Farming.  These farms of the future will use cutting-edge technology and equipment to make horticulture farming more efficient and productive.
