|Project name||Tasmanian Wool SmartFarm|
|Funding bodies||Australian Wool Innovation Limited|
|Chief Investigators||Brian Horton, Janine Chang Fung Martel, Sarah Andrewartha and Byeong Kang|
This project will investigate the benefits to production and sustainability in the adoption and application of advanced management technologies (AMTs), such as the AWI SmartTags, in several high performing wool producing properties in Tasmania.
The project aims to create national and global visibility of the on-farm adoption of AMTs, and demonstrate the use of AMTs in supporting practices associated with high quality, sustainable and socially acceptable wool and sheep production systems.
This phase 1 project will support a potentially longer-term commitment between contributing parties and broader collaboration with a range of supply chain stakeholders.
