We are very pleased to announce that Ros Harvey, Founder and Managing Director of The Yield, was named in The Australian's Top 100 Innovators List.
Innovation spans many fields in Australia, helping to future-proof our economy and providing thousands of new hi-tech jobs. It is not only helping us stay relevant on the global stage, it is putting us ahead of the curve. The conversation around innovation is finally changing in Australia, and we are becoming an innovation nation.
Australian innovation is at an inflection point. The next generation of founders and companies are coming through, and they're bringing our economy - and Australia's future - along with them.
Ros Harvey, The Yield Technology Solutions
Sydney AgTech startup The Yield uses Internet of Things technology, as well as data science and artificial intelligence, to tackle challenges in farming and throughout the food supply chain.
Founded in 2014 by managing director Ros Harvey, The Yield started with a real-time data application designed to help oyster farmers but has since expanded into agriculture, solving challenges at the farm level and working with some of Australia’s largest food corporations in intensive irrigated crops.
“Technology is critical in delivering security, particularly in light of current disrupted food supply chains,” Harvey says.
“Our Sensing+ microclimate solution helps customers to work largely remotely in managing the needs of their crops and their labour requirements. It facilitates the uptake of automated robotic operations in farming and remote management of dispersed assets.”
