Digital Agriculture Investment Scheme

About the Scheme

The Digital Agriculture Investment Scheme (the Scheme) has been developed to assist farm businesses invest in digital technology to improve productivity, resilience, and the long-term viability of their farms.

The Victorian Government is working to ensure that Victoria’s farmers are at the forefront of agriculture’s digital revolution. In November 2020, the Government launched the Agriculture Strategy to create a Victorian agriculture sector that is strong, innovative and sustainable. The Strategy outlines Victoria’s plan to grow a thriving and globally competitive sector in Victoria. To support this, $10 million is committed to the Scheme to help farmers overcome the financial barrier associated with investing in digital agriculture technologies.

Digital agriculture is further supported by the state’s SmartFarms and the Smarter, Safer Farms initiative.

The Scheme is being delivered by Rural Finance on behalf of Agriculture Victoria.

The Digital Agriculture Investment Scheme is now fully subscribed, and the program is closed to new applications.

Applications previously submitted to Rural Finance under this program are being processed in date order.
