Search for farm innovation
A Federal Government agricultural inquiry will seek new and emerging technologies to improve efficiency in the industry.
Improved telecommunications, remote monitoring, drones, plant genomics and chemicals will be some of the areas looked into.
The Agriculture and Industry Committee will also look into ways to negate barriers to the adoption of emerging technology.
Durack MP Melissa Price said the inquiry would strengthen the agriculture sector in her electorate.
“The electorate of Durack is unique for a variety of reasons, and Durack farmers have had to be innovative since day one to survive,” she said.
“This is a chance for people to have their say on how we can improve agriculture in Australia.
“I encourage everyone to make a submission and be heard in the future of Australian agriculture.”
The committee will accept submissions under its terms of reference until September 25.
