Sustainable Farming

    sustainable-farmingAgtrix makes it easy to assess, report and improve your sustainable farming activities using our leading spatially enabled software solution. Using AgDat technology, we can prepare reports that demonstrate how your farm operates profitably with minimal impact on ecosystem health. Data about any crop or area of land can be securely shared amongst growers, advisors, processors and industry groups to support best practice in sustainable farming. Reporting Sustainable Outcomes AgDat is an end-to-end data management system that can:

    • Provide objective data on sustainable approaches to harvesting and processing (eg tillage, irrigation, chemical use and transport)
    • Measure and communicate the effectiveness of government-funded extension programs
    • Report environmental best practice to shareholders
    • Help companies comply with certification requirements (eg organic, genetically modified)
    • Help companies comply with food industry standards (eg European Union)
    • Provide agronomy advisors with the best available data to inform decision-making.

    Our software enables trusted agencies to act as brokers, providing regulatory bodies with consolidated base reports, and lobby government using objective data. Agtrix's software has been used to generate the mapping required for Land and Water Management Plans. Recording & Sharing Information AgDat records all field activities and recommendations in a central database to assist agricultural advisors and managers in planning a harvest to achieve sustainable outcomes. Data can be recorded by different stakeholders using three interfaces:

    • Computer (AgDat)
    • Touchscreen in farm machinery (AgDat Remote)
    • Web interface (AgDat Web).

    Information about a crop or area of land can be easily retrieved by clicking on a map, and data can be securely exchanged between stakeholders, at any time, to inform sustainable farm planning and management. AgDat Click here to read the Value of Data case study

    Audit and Compliance

     Audit and Compliance AgDat makes it easier and cheaper to meet your reporting and compliance requirements by automatically tracking your stock from its point of origin. Our quality assurance system is second-to-none. Using sophisticated data collection systems, you can record all farm activities and inputs once and present the data many times, in different forms, to meet government, industry and customer requirements. AgDat streamlines the reporting process, making it easier for agricultural companies to comply with

    • Certification requirements (eg organic, genetically modified)
    • Food industry standards (eg European Union)
    • Government reporting regulations (eg REEF)
    • Financial/accounting requirements

    Spatial Data RecordingAgDat Data Recording provides a spatial audit trail, identifying everything there is to know about your crop and the parcel of land attached to it. All data relating to a crop and its related area of land is recorded spatially, stored in a central database and retained over time. Unlike most traditional systems, the AgDat spatial database enables data to be accessed for any piece of land, regardless of what crop is grown, who owns the land or how it is managed at the time of data retrieval. The system also allows you to store data for a partial paddock, one numerous paddocks, with a single data entry record. This spatial data repository enables agricultural advisors to record and share information relating to:

    • Surveys
    • Site information, analysis and visits
    • Plant source
    • Planting details
    • Pests
    • Diseases
    • Inputs
    audit-compliance

    Relevant data can be easily retrieved from a

    • Desktop or laptop computer (AgDat)
    • Touchscreen in farm machinery (AgDat Remote)
    • Web interface (AgDat Web)

    Crop, harvest and delivery information captured by the AgDat Data Recording system can also be retrieved by processors in real time to help trace the source of poor quality stock.
