Writing the blueprint for our farming future

In a rapidly changing world, Australian agriculture has set its sights on achieving big things. As we move toward a net zero carbon footprint and building to a $100 billion industry, technology has never been more important.

A partnership between Charles Sturt University and Food Agility Cooperative Research Centre, the Global Digital Farm is a 'landscape laboratory' at work on a 1600Ha commercial, operating farm, located at the Wagga Wagga campus in New South Wales (Australia).

At Global Digital Farm, we're helping Australian farmers to unlock the power of data, digital technology and world-leading research to face a fast-moving and sustainable farming future.

Innovation in action

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

Biodiversity areas provide connectivity with the surrounding catchment, improving the health of the farm and creating opportunities for community awareness, education and social connection.

Designed to provide research and training opportunities for students studying both agriculture and animal science subjects.

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.

The National Life Sciences Hub (NaLSH), is a world-class facility used for research and teaching in plant and animal sciences, food production and security, animal health and water and environmental sciences.

An indoor plant growth facility that provides precisely controllable climatic conditions for experimental plant research.

Comprising 72 cores with a depth of 2.5m and diameter of 760mm, the Rhizolysimeter is one of the largest root growth and soil water research facilities in the Southern Hemisphere.

Students experience all aspects of yard work, with a focus on animal health, reproduction and nutrition.

Students can experiment with a variety of farm practices on crops to see the effect on growth, yield, soil nutrients, disease and weed control.
