In February 2014, Agtrix successfully implemented a new online system (AgDat) for the Banana industry. This was Phase 1 of a project to monitor production practices and to facilitate industry response to biosecurity and natural disaster. Market representatives and twenty one (21) farms were involved in this initial phase which entailed mapping their farms and paddocks and providing them with a way that they could capture base production data. Data was recorded by growers and the study team using an interactive web mapping interface. The second phase of the project is expected to commence in March 2014 and will see the remainder of the Banana industry being incorporated into AgDat.
