Getting All Techy!

Posted on 20/05/2015 ยท Posted in Queensland

Frustration turned to understanding on Monday March 30th in Moonie as nine people gathered for the Partners in Grains Technology, Tablets and Tips workshop. The workshop aimed to give participants a better understanding of technology within the business and how to use it to increase efficiencies on the farm. Craig Mc Allister from Mac Productions Co was the facilitator for the day and covered various topics including tablet functionality, cloud computing, Apps, and social media for agriculture.
Included in the day was a training session for Production Wise, an online crop management tool developed by Grain Growers. Production Wise allows users to map paddocks and record management activities as well as monitor crop development through the incorporation of seasonal climate and yield forecasting tools.
Whilst the limited mobile phone coverage at Moonie posed some challenges for the day participants left armed with the skills and knowledge to increase the use of electronic technology within their business.
Thanks to the sponsors GRDC and the fabulous support from Grain Growers Ltd to make this day happen.
