Farming IT specialises in the the use of the technology as a tool for optimising inputs to match available soil water in non-irrigated agriculture.
FarmingIT started life as Landmark Solutions in July 2000.
Landmark Solutions specialised in GPS mapping services, operating the first Dual Dipole EM38 ground conductivity meter in Australia. We were the first business to commercially offer fully interpreted EM mapping, providing derivative datasets such as predicted soil salinity, texture and water content using a combination of strategic soil cores and complex statistical modelling.
In October 2000 Landmark Solutions became the Australian distributors for Farm Works Software. We were well suited to the job having over 5 years experience using Farm Works to create our map products.
In 2003 we moved to Meredith in the Western Districts of Victoria to better serve our growing market in the grains industry. At this time we also rebranded our entire operation as Farm Works Pty Ltd to strengthen our commitment to the Farm Works brand name.
In 2005 Farm Works became a distributor for Sentek Sensor Technologies soil moisture monitoring equipment.
In 2010 FarmingIT was launched as a single site solution to all your farming information management needs.
This represents our change in role from the sole distributor of Farm Works software under the founding owners of Farm Works, to an Australia-wide support role under the new owners, Trimble Navigation.
FarmingIT will still continue to sell Farm Works Software direct to the end user, but we are now one of a team of dedicated Trimble resellers authorised to sell Trimble Information Management products.
More importantly our role is now to support all users of Farm Works Software throughout Australia and New Zealand.
