The new Farming Forecaster tool was launched in April 2020 and TFS has been involved since its inception. It was launched via Webinar with the Hon Angus Taylor, Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction cutting the ‘online ribbon’ for the unveiling. Farming Forecaster puts weather, soil moisture, pasture production and livestock performance information at the fingertips of farmers allowing them to make timely and informed decisions during increasingly volatile and variable conditions. This system was made possible through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program with a Smart Farming Partnership grant.
Access to the system has been released to TFS members via personalized logins with the public page available from May 7th. To become a member of TFS and gain access to the TFS member only areas of Farming Forecaster, please make contact with us.
