After years of completing farm environment plans I want to make the process easier and cheaper for farmers.
I know farmers don’t want to sit in front of a computer all day, but they need to keep a huge amount of complex data for compliance, which is asked for by different people in slightly different ways over and over again. It’s manual and it’s expensive and frankly it’s a bit painful. Yeah, there is software out there now that collects data but those systems don’t do anything with it, and much of what is available is expensive and hard to use with sausage fingers when you’re out on the farm. So I’m building software to use the farmer’s mobile phone to do the work computers should be doing.
Mobile phones can collect a lot of the information we need for compliance purposes, and we can automate much of the freshwater, greenhouse gas and health and safety planning process. We can generate reports from your data to make it super easy to deal with farm assurance audits, the bank and other people who want your information. As a qualified environmental planner and greenhouse gas advisor with a background in Business Intelligence I’m the right person to do this right now. I am experienced in farming, data and farm planning – this is the intersection of all my geekdoms. I want to support farmers to bring control of their compliance back within their fencelines
