Smart Farming

Agriculture in Australia is one of the backbones of our economy and ensures our population has food security.  The industry is full of complex technological developments that help to increase production and efficiency, making farming more economical and sustainable. Understanding agricultural systems as whole ecosystems can help us manage our farms more efficiently and build more resilient systems for the future. In this activity, students use a range of data collection techniques to assess biomass, plant and soil health in a patch of land, and think about ways in which farmers could manage plots to be more regenerative and resilient.
