The Digital On-Farm trial was established by Agriculture Victoria in 2020 to provide a wide range of Internet of Things (loT) solutions for farmers in the trial regions. NNNCo is rolling out the Low Power Wide Area Networks to cover approximately 600 farms and 5,000 square kilometres across four regions. The roll-out will provide coverage to every farm in the trial regions with LoRaWAN network connectivity and NNNCo’s data aggregation platform, N2N-DL, ensuring farmers can connect devices for a wide range of applications.
The trial is taking place across four farm types and regions. Network connectivity for the trial is expected to cover the local government areas of Wellington for dairy, Buloke for grains, Loddon for sheep, and Greater Shepparton and parts of Moira (Cobram and surrounds) for horticulture.
