National Centre for Precision Farming

Interest Groups

Interest Groups are an important vehicle for the NCPF to outreach farming and agricultural stakeholders on topics of specific significance in the development of agriculture and their application in meeting the needs for the future food security challenge. Current interest groups include the Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and the Digital Agri-Food Special Interest Group

A particular format has been identified for these Interest Groups, in terms of both their specification and their function. A progressive policy identifying and delivering Interests Groups is being pursued, wherein the topics identified are considered to be of formative importance in the development of agriculture and demand collective consideration of stakeholder views and stakeholder participation in development initiatives.

Partnerships between industry stakeholders and academe are required, ostensibly with industry stakeholders taking the lead in ensuring that practical and economic benefits can be gained, with the NCPF assisting in the Interest Group goals. While initial content for each Interest Group is prescribed, Group members will have the opportunity to change and develop content according to need and developments within the respective groups.
