The Waterly Quarterly – October 19

The Farmbot – The Waterly Quarterly


It was a busy quarter here at Farmbot HQ since we last shared news with you back in July.  Our team have travelled to every state and territory in Australia. Attended too many events to list, won an amazing award and appeared in over 150 media articles, helping Farmers better manage their water. Of most significance, our tech team have been putting the finishing touches on the next generation Farmbot. The culmination of all the things we’ve learnt, feedback from you- our valued customers. It is enabling us to generate the best technology we can find to support your needs now and in the future. It is an exciting time to be working with you to help make your businesses more productive and profitable in these testing times for many in Australian agriculture. We thank you all for your valued contribution, custom and feedback. There’s some more info and links in our newsletter below so that you can keep in touch with what we are up to, give us your feedback and #knowyourwater

Wilmot Cattle based 90km out of Armidale were devastated by the Ebor fires in August. The Farmbot’s team thoughts are with Stuart Austin and his Family at the Wilmot Cattle Company. We wish them and all others impacted by fires around the country the best in restoring their operations.

Product Developments & Improvements
#Dashboard updates & improvements

We are continuing to upgrade the program of our user interface and dashboard to add further functionality and reporting for our users. One of the most common questions that we come across at Farmbot is how can I get more from my dashboard. Luckily the answer is simple! 
We can provide you with the most accurate and timely alerts, your tanks calibration needs to be accurate. The two critical points for the calibration is:

– What is the height of your tank? (measuring from the bottom of the tank to the overflow)
– What is the volume of your tank in either litres/gallons

An important reminder for all users – unless you have thick mud in the bottom of your tank, your sensor probe should sit on the bottom of the tank for the most accurate levels.

Farmbot has been to over 20 events throughout Australia, which our team has travelled far and wide for. Key events we have attended include Agquip in Gunnedah, Henty Field Day, Dowerin Field Day and a huge number of other regional rural shows and events across Australia. We would love to go to a rural show near you so please let us know what you think are the best rural events around the country that we should attend and talk more about ‘knowing your water’.

Field Days
