SuniTAFE SMART Farm has collaborated with a number of partners to conduct trials and research projects. The purpose is to address key challenges facing the industry today and in the future.
Not only do we continue to undertake trials and research projects, but you can get involved too! We encourage you to take on a trial site at the SMART Farm, trial new technology or processes. We can help you connect with other industry leaders, peak bodies, local growers, schools and SuniTAFE students.
If you are interested in innovating, then the SMART Farm can assist.
