Golden Grove Nursery uses smart technology

Golden Grove Nursery at Torbanlea, Queensland, has reimagined its entire business operation by utilising remote sensing technology. It is one of Australia's leading commercial citrus production nurseries.

The business has been involved in a strategic levy-funded project entitled "Digital remote monitoring to improve horticulture's environmental performance", in conjunction with Hort Innovation and the Australian Government's National Landcare Program.

This has seen it install a new innovative irrigation control system, remote camera monitors, new environmental measuring devices and redesigning growing media for horticultural tree stock. The technology sees data uploaded to the cloud and presented live on a screen in the office, which removes the need to manually record the data in spreadsheets.

The monitoring sensors give the nursery staff an overview of the crop requirements through the different growth stages and weather events. The strategic partnership aims to encourage adoption of technology which helps Australian horticultural businesses improve decision-making skills, production efficiencies, optimal labor use and environmental performance.
