THE state government is calling on all suppliers of AgTech to put forward their products and apply to be showcased at the Loxton AgTech demonstration farm.

The state's second AgTech demonstration farm at Loxton was launched last month, with four initial technologies from D3Ag, MEA, Tevatronic and CropX on hand to help show producers in the region the productivity benefits from taking up innovative technology.

Primary Industries Minister Tim Whetstone said the horticulturally-focused research farm was now seeking more technologies to be showcased at Loxton.

"Our recent AgTech survey highlighted the need from primary producers to be able to look, feel and touch new technologies so they can understand how that technology can benefit their farm," he said.

"We are opening the call for technology providers to express their interest in being involved in the AgTech demonstration farm at Loxton to encourage greater adoption by primary producers.

"That's why we've established AgTech demonstration sites, starting at Struan and Kybybolite and now at Loxton, so primary producers can experience these AgTech products first-hand.

"If you have a commercially-available technology that you think has application across SA's horticulture, viticulture, and agriculture industries, we want to work with you to showcase those benefits to our farmers."

Expression of Interests for technology are now open and will be accepted on an ongoing basis.
