The objective of this project is to modernise the way data is collected from rice growers to avoid duplication and to encourage the uptake of the use of MapRice.

MapRice is the SunRice Geographical Information System, which was developed by Agtrix and is now in use through a joint initiative between NSW Department of Primary Industries and SunRice.

The successful uptake by growers of MapRice will simplify data collection from growers and give them a computer based record of their cropping systems on farm making future decisions easier with all the information in one place.
