Dr Ian Goodwin from Agriculture Victoria’s Tatura SmartFarm, and APAL’s 2022 Researcher of the Year, will chat in the orchard about climate challenges faced by growers and the ways in which PIPS3 Program research has tested sensing technologies that have real potential to assist growers in their decisions in relation to crop load and harvest.
