The Global Digital Farm is an integrated digital learning, innovation and research environment working within a full scale, commercial, mixed farm operation.
Through deployment of mobile sensing and action technologies, telecommunications innovations and the generation of data-fuelled insights we seek to unlock the power of data and digital in ways that will help our farmers make the right decisions in the right place at the right time.
Charles Sturt University, in partnership with Food Agility Co-operative Research Centre, is already transforming the university's 1,600 hectare commercial farm, located at the Wagga Wagga campus in New South Wales (Australia).
Join Charles Sturt's Farm Manager, James Stephens, on a 360 degree virtual tour of the commercial farm - the engine room that powers the Global Digital Farm.
Technology is used to enhance the operations of the commercial farm and help the farm manager make business critical decisions.
