Pairtree is excited to be an official Farms of the Future (FotF) Agtech Program Partner with the NSW DPI in 2023.
Eligible farmers can apply for up to $35K to put towards $50K worth of agtech for their farms. This money can only be spent with suppliers listed in the Agtech Catalogue (including us).
Imagine how much data $50K worth of agtech will produce! It’s worth planning from the outset how you’re going to manage it.
That’s where Pairtree is invaluable. We centralise all your digital information so it’s easier to access and analyse for better decision making support.
In addition to the inclusions listed below, you can add data sets & live feeds from IoT devices & digital services from 18 selected FotF suppliers to your personalised farm dashboard.
Check out what’s included with a Pairtree PLUS subscription and the many benefits of adding other integrations to streamline your data.
Applications for the compulsory training course have now closed.
Participants must complete the FotF training program in person or online.
The course helps you create a Monitoring your Farm with Agtech plan to decide which connectivity & agtech devices will most benefit your operation.
Once your plan is approved you can then purchase & install products and services from the FotF Agtech catalogue as outlined in your plan.

View critical information from all your agtech devices, apps and services on your Pairtree farm dashboard by integrating data from these 18 selected Farms of the Future suppliers.**
No need to log in to different apps or websites and no more ‘data silos’ preventing your data being used across different computer programs.
Pairtree makes different data sets ‘speak’ to each other by ‘standardising’ your farm data, so you are no longer wedded to using any particular brand or supplier.
For example, you might have water tank, dam level & trough gauges from a few different suppliers. With Pairtree you can now view all your water resource levels together on one digital farm map.
Your farm data is securely stored in a standardised format ready for use in different ways including regulatory reporting frameworks such as LPA and carbon farming, and other future protocols.
Rest assured you can always add more as you adopt new technologies or change suppliers.
We can integrate data from 100+ different suppliers but these may not be covered by FotF grants.
Your PLUS subscription includes unlimited users at up to three locations (farms), 50GB secure data storage and online or phone support within 48 hours.
Rest assured knowing Pairtree is a signatory to the NFF’s Farm Data Code, so your data is absolutely safe with us.
*All prices ex GST. **You must have an active Pairtree PLUS subscription in order to integrate data from ‘Paired Partners’ and other sources.
For each of the 18 different suppliers you pay the $250 set up fee + a monthly $40 access fee on top of the $40 monthly Pairtree PLUS subscription.
Pairtree PLUS is a great starting point. If you are not ready to integrate data yet, or haven’t decided on what agtech you will adopt on your farm in the future, you can always add it later.
Farms of the Future funding is available for Pairtree PLUS subscriptions and integrations with the 18 suppliers listed above. If you want to integrate data from other suppliers onto your Pairtree farm dashboard, please contact us.
We are the industry leaders in the Australian agtech and farm data integration space, having successfully integrated data from 100+ different suppliers so far, and always adding more. Check out our connections.
We also work with industry associations, research organisations and government agencies to create bespoke data integration and visualisation solutions.
Please contact us to discuss your unique data integration and display needs if you can’t see what you’re looking for here. We are here to help.
Pairtree played a key role in Farms of the Future pilot project back in 2020.
Three farms tested a wide range of agtech so other producers could do on-site and virtual tours, and the farmers could provide invaluable insights and feedback about their experiences to help shape the new program.
Pairtree was called on to centralise data from 20 different types of devices, from eight different suppliers, on four different networks (LoRaWAN, Wi-Fi, cellular and satellite) at the three different farms.
By using Pairtree dashboards the farmers could access, view and understand data feeds from all the devices more easily.
This included water tank, trough, bore level and irrigation monitors, soil moisture probes, in crop senors, remote weather stations, video surveillance, in paddock cattle weighing & monitoring and more.
Watch the three FotF pilot farmers discuss their experiences using the latest agtech, integrated on a Pairtree dashboard, on their properties.
