The Better Data for Better Decisions constellation is a Food Agility CRC program of research, led by Federation University, that is addressing the capacity of those in agrifood industries to use data for better decision‐making and ultimately, for better business outcomes. Central to this program is the concept of making data FAIR:
Data is sought by producers, farm product consumers, environmental agencies, natural resource managers, investors, financiers, realtors, insurers, and those who are seeking evidence for best practice land, stock and agribusiness management. By capitalising on the wide range of digital technologies available to the agrifoods sector, data custodians can determine how they wish their data to be shared while maintaining control over their data.
Opportunities have never been greater for sharing agricultural and food data nationally, internationally and across sectors. This is driven by a pressing need to better understand our agricultural environments at all scales.
The expected outcomes of the research program are:
