The Minnipa Agricultural Centre is among the sites being included as part of the $2.4 million regional AgTech demonstration farms and start-up hubs project.

The AgTech Strategic Plan is aimed at encouraging South Australia's primary producers to further adopt technology to increase productivity and profitability.

Primary Industries Minister David Basham said opening the centre as the new AgTech demonstration site would help show the value of technology to farmers and producers in the region.

"The Minnipa Research Centre has been one of Australia's leading dryland research sites for many years and the additions of AgTech on-farm will be important as the facility continues to move forward," Minister Basham said.

"Adoption of the right AgTech on-farm could save our farmers money, increase their profitability, productivity and improve their sustainability," he said.

Farmers and growers will be able to attend the AgTech demonstration sites to experience AgTech solutions on a working farm, once it is safe to do so within COVID-19 regulations.

Expressions of interest are now open for the AgTech demonstration site at Minnipa.
