Australian Centre for Precision AgricultureWe’re going to publish a regular post called, “Precision Agriculture in the News” to point you to stories we find. That’s part of what will make a good aggregator of information for you.

Since we took a look last week at some precision ag progress in Japan we’ll turn to another country this week, Australia. From a story on Science Daily we found out about the University of Sydney’s Australian Centre for Precision Agriculture.

The Australian Centre for Precision Agriculture was founded in 1995 to introduce, develop and promote Precision Agriculture in Australia as a method of environmentally and economically sustainable management and thereby maintain Australia’s internationally competitive rural industries and sustain their resource base.

The story says that the Centre has developed some tools to make it easier for growers to apply yield and soil map data.
