A national survey is being conducted to better understand the needs and issues facing Australian producers in relation to using digital technology and agricultural data.
The P2D cross-industry survey is supported by funding from the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources as part of its Rural R&D for Profit programme.
Digital technologies in agriculture have presented great opportunities for productivity growth and farm profitability. This survey aims to understand producers’ needs and issues in relation to using agricultural data. Such understanding will facilitate policy development in supporting producers to fully take advantage of the opportunities offered by digital technologies. Your participation is crucial for achieving this goal!
The survey will be conducted by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in collaboration with the agricultural research company KG2, who will invite a broad cross section of Australian producers to take part in the phone survey.
If you agree to participate, you will be asked about your experience with using digital technology and agricultural data. The phone survey will take about 20 minutes to complete. All responses will be strictly confidential.
If you are interested in taking part in the survey, you can phone (02 9191 9844) or email KG2 (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the survey company will contact you. Please provide your name and phone number, the type of farming operation you are involved in and specify the preferred time of day to participate in the survey. We would like to hear from you by Monday, 13 March 2017.
