Digiscape’s work ‘returns’ to CSIRO
CSIRO’s Digiscape Future Science Platform is now complete. Digiscape supported next generation decision making to help transform agricultural industries and environmental action – work that continues across CSIRO.
Future science teamwork yields unique international collaboration
Digiscape has been working with CSIRO's Responsible Innovation Future Science Platform and AgResearch on a new area of study: how might responsible innovation practices apply to digital agricultural technologies? (20 May 2022)
Science Wednesday: crop monitoring across the grain belt, part 2
In this short video, Randall Donohue shows how the Graincast team combined the breadth of satellite data with depth of physiological understanding to forecast grain yields at paddock scale (6 Apr 2022)
Science Wednesday: crop monitoring across the grain belt
Everyone in agritech can learn something by reading this new paper in Crop and Pasture Science, about how the Graincast technologies work together (23 Mar 2022)
Science Wednesday: digital shrimp
A new overview paper in Experimental Aquaculture and a 9-minute video give an overview of how Digiscape's digital technologies for prawn aquaculture are "all about the workflow" (2 Mar 2022)
Science Wednesday: monitoring evapotranspiration from fields to regions
Dave Deery from the WaterWise project talks us through an R&D opportunity: blending proximal and satellite sensors to monitor crop evapotranspiration consistently across spatial scales (16 Feb 2022)
Artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning: what can they do for agriculture?
How can artificial intelligence help agriculture and farming? Trust, accurate data and making decisions and predictions once never dreamed of will inspire innovation in ag. Read the article in ECOS. (14 Feb 2022)
Science Wednesday: federating soil spectra
Brendan Malone presents techniques for standardising soil spectra to a reference instrument, so solving one of a frequent class of problems in digital agriculture and environmental science: data that are collected via a fragmented process and then stay salient for longer than the data-collection technology stays current (2 Feb 2022)
Science “Wednesday”: grasping at digitalisation
Simon Fielke and colleagues take the idea of "grasping" the digital and use it to provide an account of the process by which people come to terms with a foreign digital technology: Mystified → Aware → Spark → Transforming (26 Jan 2022)
Science Wednesday: coupled groundwater and streamflow forecasts
A substantial portion of irrigation water in Australia is extracted from groundwater, but online forecasts of water supply only cover streamflow. In this 9-minute video, Guobin Fu takes us through a new forecasting model for groundwater levels (19 Jan 2022)
Science Wednesday: Big Data in farming – have we worked it out yet?
With the Australian AgriFood Data Exchange implementing initial use cases, it's timely to revisit the 2018 Digiscape paper "Is big data for big farming or for everyone? Perceptions in the Australian grains industry." (5 Jan 2022)
Science Wednesday: soils information for “somewhere” as well as for “anywhere”
In this 10-minute video, Kirsten Verburg takes us through the science behind an app that helps farmers to predict plant-available water content for specific paddocks, by combining their own local observations with landscape-level information provided centrally. Deeper questions about digitally-enabled extension arise... (22 Dec 2021)
