Australians are known for their love of technology and as early adopters we look to new technologies to deliver efficiencies and perhaps nowhere is more representative than in agriculture. Australian farmers have turned to agro-tech innovations to improve farming efficiency, crop yields and reduce costs where possible.
DataFarming is a Queensland-based company that creates digital solutions across the country and the world. With around 40% of Australian grain farms (28,000) using their Digital-Agronomist platform.
Agri-intelligence uses machine learning to gain real-time information about agricultural production across the landscape. Their satellite images are updated every five days, meaning farmers and agronomists can monitor their crops and pastures from above in near real time. The fidelity of these images allows farmers to access a resolution of 70 centimeters by 70 centimeters.
To continue to drive this success, DataFarming launched its $5 million Series A fundraising on growthAG. platform to support the development of its product suite and expand globally. Learn more about this investment opportunity here.
