SWAN Systems

Tim is a founding director of both SWAN Systems and AFS Agriculture, a specialist agricultural consultancy firm providing consultancy services to innovative farmers and horticulturalists. Tim has over 25 years of experience in agriculture and horticulture. After University studies, Tim developed and managed agricultural enterprises in the North of Western Australia. In the early 2000’s he started growing horticultural crops using precision technology, and since then he has focused on adapting the technology to other irrigated crop types, including fodder and turf. Recently, Tim and the team have developed SWAN Systems, a cloud based management solution for irrigators that harvests data from a selection of sources, including flow meters, soil moisture probes and weather stations, then calculates future irrigation needs based on weather forecasts and crop requirements.
