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).
Technology is used to enhance the operations of the commercial farm and help the farm manager make business critical decisions.

A first-class facility that allows students to develop practical skills in livestock handling, clinical skills and herd management.
Our modern and sophisticated plant growth facilities are used for a wide range of research projects and by students studying biology subjects.
The Irrigation Laboratory was established to optimise irrigation design for energy savings, water savings and efficiency. It enables students to observe the relationship between physical models of irrigation and operational systems.
An indoor plant growth facility that provides precisely controllable climatic conditions for experimental plant research.
Students can experiment with a variety of farm practices on crops to see the effect on growth, yield, soil nutrients, disease and weed control.
