Tasmanian Costa berry growers will soon be using sensor technology to increase yield productions as part of ongoing research into digital ag technology.
The Yield's Sensor + technology will see farmers being able to use phone app technology to receive data and analytics about the growing conditions of their plants through the use of sensors attached to plants.
This will help them to know when to plant, irrigate, feed, protect and harvest their plants, and ultimately provide them with yield information.
Costa Group chief executive Harry Debney said it was about managing growing conditions to improve quantity and quality of yields.
"We have been impressed with the accuracy achieved to date, compared with our current manual approach."
