'MAKING your data work for you' will be the theme of a free workshop for grain producers, to be held on the Yorke Peninsula next month. Facilitated by Grain Producers SA, the AgriFutures and Australia FarmTech Planning workshop will be held at the Curramulka Community Club on March 16, with attendees encourages to contribute, share and discuss key themes about on-farm technology. GPSA chief executive officer Brad Perry said the workshop was timely following evokeAG being held in Adelaide. "We are excited to be bringing this AgTech workshop to the Yorke Peninsula with support of Rural Edge, IntellectAg and AgriFutures Australia," he said. "Following a sold-out evokeAG conference in Adelaide, the conversation about adoption of technology on-farm continues with a focus on the benefits of digitising and return on investment of technology adoption. "The workshop will be broken into three parts - Why Digitise, Getting Started and FarmTech Planning - looking at key topics such as connectivity, data rights, data recording and finalising this all by putting together a FarmTech plan.

"Importantly it will look at productivity and efficiency using what resources farmers have now and then identifying where technology can fill the gaps."

GPSA's 2022 annual producer survey found the application of technology was seen by South Australian grain producers as the single biggest opportunity to enhance their business. Of surveyed grain producers, 46 per cent were already investing in on-farm technology and almost 40pc planned to do so in the next 12 months. Numbers are limited and producers can register at eventbrite.com.au/e/agrifutures-farm-technology-planning-workshop-curramulka-tickets-528943222417. The FarmTech planning workshop is part of the 'Connecting the Un Connected' project, led by Grain Producers SA and funded by AgriFutures Australia.
