FARM ONLINE | Autonomous machinery opportunities beckon with good government policy

AUSTRALIA could be a world leader in autonomous vehicle technology if government puts in appropriate pathways according to grain grower lobby group Grain Producers Australia.

GPA made a submission to the government on its plans to develop a National Robotics strategy.

Chief executive at GPA Colin Bettles said the key was to develop a framework that delivered a clear pathway towards adoption of autonomous farm machinery, which he claimed could deliver vital farm efficiency gains and broader community benefits.

He said the submission highlighted work already underway to introduce a Code of Practice for the use of agricultural machinery in Australia.
