SPAA Society of Precision Agriculture Australia promotes the development and adoption of precision agriculture technologies as means of enhancing the profitability and sustainability of agricultural crop production systems. Established in 2002, the non-profit organisation, with a volunteer committee provides independent support to all parties involved in precision agriculture.

Current members of the Association include people involved in the production of grains, livestock and horticultural crops, in vocations such as growers, consultants and researchers.  The membership reflects the Association’s view that the management of all crop production systems is subject to of the inherent variability of the land.

Precision agriculture provides the means for measuring the variability observed in crop yield and quality parameters. Precision agriculture tools also provide the means for site specific crop management and when combined with traditional agronomy tools, can lead to improved crop yields, quality and efficiency of crop production. Precision agriculture will be an important innovation on Australian farms in the future, with potential for quantum increases in production efficiency.

SPAA publishes a regular newsletter for its members, distributes enews, holds field days and seminars including 2 major forums annually with one hosted in a regional centre, and is active in the promotion of PA and as such conducts demonstration and experimentation on members’ properties.

 

Our mission

SPAA will be a facilitator for increased research, extension and adoption of precision agriculture.

The key goals for the organisation are to:

  • Increase grower adoption of precision agriculture across Australia;
  • Be a growing information source on precision agriculture in Australia;
  • Maintain and grow a stable and professional organisation.
