Award-winning technologies

Based in Esperance, Environmental & Cropping Technologies Australia (ECTA) offers award-winning, customised precision agriculture and geographic information systems (GIS) support services throughout Western Australia and South Australia.

Utilising industry-leading software and technology, ECTA offers data processing and mapping services that help farmers improve operations and efficiencies through a path of continuous improvement.

They actively work with all layers of data and machinery brands and offer PA packages that suit the goals of each individual farm and organisation.

From yield mapping, protein mapping and harvester matching, to soil sampling, biomass mapping and elevation/waterflow mapping, there’s a solution available to suit every grower.

Recently, the team have started offering customised agtech and connectivity solutions aimed at removing the digital divide.

Some of the many products available include on-farm weather/inversion monitoring stations, right up to whole-paddock and infrastructure WiFi connectivity.

“We’re quite different to the other precision agriculture companies offering services throughout Western Australia,” said company director, Philip Honey.

“We offer a professional, personal service backed up by tertiary credentials in GIS and agricultural sciences, that is combined with real-life farming experience.”

“We are qualified professionals that are proud to process 100 per cent of our data in-house and we also understand the challenges with technology at the farm-gate level, actively working with growers to help improve their bottom line and achieve more productivity sustainably.”
