(in the late 1990s) our cost advantage in setting up the technology was about 100 times lower than any alternative technology "I thought one of the critical elements was to have breeding technologies that were based on genome profiling, but I also thought it was absolutely essential to have a whole-genome profiling technology rather than just application of markers. ".. Dr Kilian said the company was able to implement genome-profiling-based crop improvements by using technology to resolve the slow, manual processes of data production, capture and storage that had previously typified this work in the grains industry. ".. The type of information that our technology generates and the information that is required to be captured pointed to the importance of creating capacity to deal with this volume of data," he said...

Jock Graham is using smart technologies and communication tools to drive efficiency and productivity in his mixed-farming enterprise... In response to the lack of off-the-shelf communication technologies needed to connect his farms, Jock has circumvented the gap by developing alternative technologies - including his own farm record-keeping software tools... In 2015 Jock travelled to Asia, Europe and the UK and this year will visit the US to research high-speed internet options for rural areas: "I didn't realise that growers in populated places such as Ireland and the UK experience the same communication challenges as we do in rural Australia - old and insufficient infrastructure, a lack of investment and poor internet service," Jock says.
