Digital Agricultural Services (DAS) was launched in partnership with CSIRO in 2017 and has a vision for a new world of rural intelligence – one which transforms how decisions are made in the myriad of businesses surrounding agriculture. The DAS machine-learning-based platform answers questions existing tech cannot. Through its world-leading rural, agricultural and climate analytics, DAS is turning science into solutions with its software-as-a-solution subscription services and data products. In doing so, DAS brings much greater efficiency to the billions of dollars in commercial decisions agri-enterprises make every year.
The complete picture
The untapped potential of applying AI and machine learning to agriculture and life-changing mega-trends like food security and climate risk inspired the founding of DAS. The DAS Rural Intelligence Platform™ integrates big-data sources such as earth observation and satellite data, Bureau of Meteorology records and Valuer-General sales statistics into one unique solution — putting science into the hands of the decision-makers.
As a high-growth start-up and data-led innovator, DAS has rapidly developed the capabilities of its platform and products. With strategic investors and customers that include some of the biggest financial services and agri-enterprises globally, DAS has attracted strong local and international backing for its platform and products.
The R&D Tax Incentive was already part of the capital mix for DAS when the company added another flexible option – accessing its tax refund early with the help of Radium Capital.
“Adding Radium to our mix of financial decision-making has enabled us to accelerate our R&D in a new way,” DAS Commercial Director and Co-founder Jonathon Clark shares.
