Will the government realise the agricultural potential of IoT?
When it comes to the agricultural potential of IoT the Australian Government just does not seem to get it. A 2015 report and a 2016 parliamentary enquiry both failed to make more than passing reference. A new enquiry is now underway. Will it do a better job?
On 3 September the Federal Government launched an inquiry that aims to discover how Australian agriculture can be boosted from a $60b industry to a $100b industry by 2030. The announcement says the National Farmers’ Federation has suggested that, with careful planning and investment, this target is achievable.
