Workshop will give producers direction
AGFORCE Projects will deliver its first run of new GPS Essentials workshops to producers next month at Biloela.
This workshop will teach producers to use GPS to improve property planning, monitor changes on property and ensure property maps are accurate on the ground.
AgForce Projects GIS technical officer Noel Brinsmead said the workshops were vital for producers already using a GPS but also suited producers looking to buy a GPS and use it on property.
“Landholders will also have the chance to work out how to calculate paddock areas and accurately measure distances including over undulating ground,” he said.
Landholders will learn how to capture property information with a GPS and transfer it into their computer mapping program which will help them keep a record of property information and production history. The workshop is on Wednesday, June 17 and is $490 a person, with a 50% discount for extra attendees from the same enterprise. Visit www.agforceprojects.org.au phone 3238 6048.
