Farmers Edge Partners With Delta Agribusiness In Australia

Farmers Edge, a global leader in precision agriculture and independent data management solutions, has partnered with Delta Agribusiness, the leading force in independent rural services and in the retail of agricultural inputs in regional New South Wales (NSW). Under the exclusive agreement, Delta Ag will introduce the new precision agriculture platform from Farmers Edge to Australia’s dryland growers, bringing them data-driven strategies to optimize on-farm profitability and sustainability.

While traditionally ahead of the curve in adopting steering and guidance technologies, the broader Australian market has lagged in utilizing precision agriculture tools relative to the comparable North American agriculture markets. Challenged by adverse weather and volatile commodity and input expenses, precision agriculture in NSW – Australia’s most lucrative farming state – represents a virtually untapped market, primed for increased production. Farm owners and managers in this region are well placed to adopt this technology as it becomes increasingly more cost-effective, seamless and proven. As NSW’s premier agriculture retailer, Delta Ag’s broad customer base has led the state on progressive farming practices and, already, growers from over 60,000 hectares throughout NSW have adopted ‘Harvest More Results’ from Farmers Edge, which includes: imagery, analysed field-centric yield data and real time fleet management.

“Agriculture in Australia – and across the world – has been plateauing as productivity gains are largely achieved through improved crop varieties and genetic research and development, and growers need to look elsewhere for the productivity gains needed in coming decades,” said Delta Ag Managing Director, Gerard Hines. “What we’re introducing to Australia is an absolute game changer – an integrated package of software, hardware and ‘boots on the ground’ support that makes precision farming accessible and achievable for all farmers. This is not just about driving yield; it’s about driving total farm performance.”

Through the field-centric technology approach from Farmers Edge, Delta Agribusiness will enable more productive and sustainable farming, ultimately increasing yields for key crops. Under the terms of the agreement, Delta Ag’s network of customers will have access to the Farmers Edge Precision Solutions package, a comprehensive turnkey system that includes: Variable Rate Technology, soil sampling and analysis, field-centric weather monitoring, in-field telematics and data transfer, high-resolution satellite imagery, field-centric data analytics, access to integrated farm management platform and a network of highly experienced, trusted advisors on the ground.

“As one of the largest broad acre cropping markets in the world, Australia has led the way in technology on the farm, but it is now poised to see another renaissance with the introduction of precision agriculture strategies,” said Wade Barnes, President and CEO of Farmers Edge. “Our partnership with a world-class agribusiness leader like Delta Ag, which has distinguished itself as a pioneer in New South Wales’ sustainable agriculture movement, is the next step in advancing better farming throughout the state. By utilizing our field-centric approach to farming, growers will be able to achieve stronger yield performance across the region.”
