Professor Simon Cook, the inaugural Premier’s Fellow in Agriculture and Food, said the scholarship program would build Curtin’s strong track record in applying data science and technology to help solve real agricultural challenges. ‘‘We’re entering very exciting times for agriculture — researchers are using drones, remote sensing and other data streams to solve problems that allow growers to produce more crop with fewer resources,’’ Prof Cook said. ‘‘This scholarship fund will see…
