The eConnected Grainbelt projects aim is to connect grain growers to the information that they need to make profitable decisions that are tailored for their paddocks, for their businesses, and for the variable conditions that they face each season.

Key messages

Each eDemonstration site has a weather station and soil moisture probe and is a place where growers, consultants and industry can gather to learn about and compare all of the decision support tools, systems and technologies available for on farm decision making. Events are organised to ensure a large variety of tools can be evaluated by growers.
