ON FARM CONNECTIVITY PROGRAM

The Australian Government’s On Farm Connectivity Program is providing $30¬†million over 2¬†years to enable primary producers in agriculture, forestry and/or fisheries to take advantage of connected machinery and sensor technology.

The objectives of the program are to:

  • extend digital connectivity and enable Primary Producers to take advantage of advanced farming technology
  • enhance a Primary Producer’s ability to implement digital agribusiness solutions through improved connectivity
  • capitalise on the agricultural sector’s productivity and growth
  • support access to new communications equipment and services by offsetting some of the cost.

Applications are now open for Round 1 of the OFCP, with up to $15 million in rebates available for the purchase of eligible equipment.

Rebates will be awarded to eligible applicants on a first come, first served basis in order of application receipt, until the funding is exhausted.

$15 million is available to 30 June 2024, or until funding is exhausted, whichever occurs first.
