The Victorian Government funded A$10 million Digital Agriculture Investment Scheme (DAIS) opened on 23rd June, 2021 with grants ranging from $5,000 to $50,000 (ex GST) aimed to improve productivity, resilience, and the long-term viability of Victorian farms. Within the first month of the announcement, the full allocation of the funding was exhausted due to fierce uptake in the farming community – validating the strong demand to adopt and hone agtech.
