Landgate has won the Best New Agricultural Release Award at the 2017 Wagin Woolorama for its innovative online farm monitoring tool ‘Pastures from Space Plus’.
Landgate Chief Executive Jodi Cant said Pastures from Space Plus gives farmers access to high resolution satellite imagery of their paddocks.
“This is only one of the features, farmers can also find more than a decade of historical pasture data and rainfall figures,” Ms Cant said.
“This information can give farmers an edge when making important management decisions about feed budgeting, stocking rates and fertiliser application.
“Better still, farmers can use their tablets or smart phones to make these decisions anywhere, anytime.
“Farming is something I am very passionate about as I grew up in Walkaway in Western Australia’s Mid West region.
“We’ve had positive feedback from farmers and agronomists who say Pastures from Space Plus is taking the guess work out of farming.
“Landgate has developed Pastures from Space Plus with farmers, for farmers and we are proud to receive recognition by the agricultural community at the 2017 Wagin Woolorama.”
Landgate was ranked 22nd last year in the Australian Financial Review’s 50 Most Innovative Companies List with Pastures from Space Plus one of the judges’ considerations.
