The Yield is joining forces with national grower-owned Research and Development corporation Horticulture Innovation Australia to deliver an exciting new tool for growers – a mobile app designed to help guide irrigation decisions.
Horticulture Innovation Australia represents Australia's $9 billion horticulture industry and invests more than $100 million in R&D and Marketing programs annually.
The app will be developed together with growers to ensure that it is easy to use, with a selection of Tasmanian and Queensland growers already taking the trial app for a spin.
The models enabling the app will be developed in partnership with The Queensland University of Technology, a leading research organisation in the field of bioinformatics and data analytics.
The first release is expected in October this year, with a basic free version and a paid subscription service with added functionality to be available for iOS, Android and Windows platforms.
