In the Media: GFIA in Focus: Passion for Agtech Innovation on Display in Brisbane / by Oli Madgett

Platfarm got a great write up in this article in Precision Ag online. And what an excellent pic of founder Oli Madgett and his super tractor! That tractor is such a great prop to show people how easily you can add a tablet and holder onto any farm vehicle.

From the article:

“Another interesting technology presented at the GFIA was Platfarm. Platfarm founder Oli Madgett explained in his presentation that his app enables grape growers to use variable rate scripts for mulch and compost, without the need for expensive monitors or other VR enabling equipment. First, a drone creates an NDVI map, after which Platfarm automatically draws in the vine rows. A viticulturist can then create the script and, when applying the mulch or compost, the machinery operated will get notified when the spreader should go to high, medium, or low output. This seems like a novel and low-cost solution that could easily be adopted anywhere in the world, regardless of the level of technology available to growers.”
