QLD DataFarming launches $5M Series A to help farmers use AI

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.

We have a few products, including the cloud-based digital agronomist, which provides satellite imagery to farmers every five days to help them manage the variability they face, whether it’s assessing the crop yield in the field or over time, or to make decisions. on the use of fertilizers.

This helps identify the causes of production variability factors – and we have designed tools such as the Variable Rate Application to address these issues. Almost every grower has an agronomist, but the ability of agronomists to service more fields can be challenging. The technology can certainly help agronomists and farmers do more thorough and faster crop verification work.

We’ve taken a consulting business, which is high value, high cost, high touchpoint, and completely transformed it into a light touchpoint, mass market, high touchpoint digital platform. low price.

We put valuable, easy-to-use agricultural data into the hands of every agronomist and grower.
