Event description
The NSW DPI Schools team invites you to our Innovation in Agriculture 2021 Student events. The events will showcase current DPI innovations.

About this event

The NSW DPI Schools team would like to invite you to our Innovation in Agriculture 2021 Student events at the NSW DPI Orange Agricultural Institute (OAI).

The Innovation in Agriculture events showcase current Department of Primary Industries innovation, technologies and research.

The day will see six workshops in a range of topic areas, all based around NSW Syllabus outcomes in Stage 5 and 6 Agriculture. The day will be suited for Yr 10-12 learners. Students will rotate through all sessions throughout the day.

Time: 9:15am- 3:05pm. Workshops start at 9:30am sharp

OAI workshops:

  • Precision Agronomy- this session investigates GPS/GNSS systems and their applications, variable rate controllers, analysis of crop performance using yield data, NDVI's, and using soil maps for fertiliser application.
  • Score 4sure- learn about the digital device that is yet get commercialised called “Score 4 Sure”. This device standardises body condition scoring in sheep and goats and allows for consistency in measurement for industry. It can be used on farm and can be produced affordably. It is less invasive and can be integrated with other animal practices.
  • CLIMATE SMART PILOTS project - Join the NSW DPI Climate change researchers as they present about digital technologies that improve farm productivity and help farmers develop adaptation strategies. The Climate Smart Pilots project trial digital technologies that improve the information generated on natural resources and climatic variability. Think drones, sensors, probes and all things digital.
  • Horticulture production- this session investigates Australian horticulture production and deeps dive into apple and cherry production in NSW, supply chains, plant breeding and technology used in industry to support production including our new DPI robotic mowers
  • Viticulture production- investigate viticultural production in NSW and Australia, learn about technology in production, biosecurity, market specifications, supply chains and career pathways
  • Cow collars in the Dairy Industry (Dairy Australia)- investigate electronic cow collars and their use in production with activities analysing authentic data for cow rumination and reproduction and how to use this information to make management decisions.
