The On-Farm Internet of Things Trial was established by Agriculture Victoria in 2020 to provide a wide range of Internet of Things (loT) solutions for farmers in four trial regions. NNNCo rolled out a new LoRaWAN® network across hundreds of farms and 32,000 square km.
The rollout provides LoRaWAN® network connectivity to every farm in these regions. NNNCo N2N-DL IoT Platform harmonises access to a vast range of sensors and devices, with integration to 18 AgTech Solutions Providers. NNNCo is working closely with the entire agricultural ecosystem to ensure that solutions can be deployed on any farm where there is an NNNCo LoRaWAN® network.
The trial took place across four farm types: Dairy, Horticulture, Grains and Sheep. Network connectivity for the trial covered the Local Government Areas of Wellington, Buloke, Loddon, Greater Shepparton and parts of Moira Shire.
