About us

The Yield is hiring! Come join us as we change the face of agtech and help feed the world without wrecking the planet.

We’re looking for an Office Administrator who is passionate about managing systems and procedures to help run our business operations.

We’re an agricultural technology company on a mission to transform food and farming practices with scalable digital technology. We use real time data and AI to power our technology to solve real challenges at farm level and throughout the food chain.

We help commercial growers make faster, more informed decisions that impact yield and reduce risk. We do this by providing an integrated set of agtech solutions that sense, analyse and predict on-farm growing conditions, and then deliver information in a usable, insightful format.

The Yield technology combines hardware, data analytics and user-friendly apps. Our agtech solutions can be applied across the food chain to help customers to drive profits and sustainability, scale faster and reduce risk. We help our customers to #growbetter.

Our Vision

Our vision is to feed the world without wrecking the planet. We plan to do this through sustainable food production with AI-driven decision making on farm and along the supply chain adjusting in real time for weather. We aim to be the essential data and AI platform for large corporate growers in speciality crops globally.

The world needs to produce 60% more food by 2050 to feed the planet at a time of unprecedented resource constraints. We aim to be a global leader in intelligent solutions in the food industry.

The Yield has a highly-focused team combining leading engineers, data scientists, agriculturists and technologists.

We partner with some of the global giants of technology services like Bosch, Yamaha Motor Company and Microsoft. We have a deep commitment to open innovation, collaboration, and diversity. A core value is that we work with the best and share the rewards.

Our Founder and Managing Director has spent her life time promoting inclusion and diversity at work. Our business is committed to creating the right culture, systems and flexibility for everyone regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, disability or sexual orientation to thrive and reach their full potential. We were awarded the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) inaugural #TechDiversity award in 2016 in recognition of our achievements. Check out our videos on our corporate values.
