The inaugural $75,000 Piper Prize for innovation in agriculture was presented to the winners, Ground Breaker Precision Agriculture, for their unique precision tyne planting system. After receiving the $25,000 Piper Award for innovation in 2016, to allow them to further develop their innovation they went on to win the $75,000 PIPER PRIZE to assist in the development and commercialisation of their planter for the benefit of Western Australian Grain growers.
The Precision Planting System was originally designed for planting summer grain crops in Queensland and after extensive research has been modified to solve the growing issues associated with planting Canola in Western Australia, which is WA’s most popular break crop. They intend to present their planter at a variety of Agricultural functions throughout Western Australia during 2018 and are looking forward to receiving orders for this truly innovative development.
