About this Site

This site covers Hidden Valley Plantations automation projects. It mostly relates to macadamia nuts but there are other things as well.

I have been particularly interested in Precision Agriculture, High Level Automation and Robotics as applied to horticulture for more than a decade now. I have several projects in this area that are coming into fruition at the moment so I decided to collect information about their progress here. I may also do some more general interest things, such as tech notes as they turn up.

This page will probably be most interesting to people in the macadamia industry but I believe that some of these technologies will apply to other crops and industries. So I’ve tried to write posts such that a more general audience can follow them without spending an age googling stuff.

For those interested, I do this site with Hexo static site generator and modified Chan theme.
