Agricultural Science

For more than 20 years we’ve aimed to be the industry leader for agricultural environmental management and engineering, both nationally and internationally.

We have specialist insights relating to environmental assessment and monitoring, intensive livestock industries, irrigation, land management and precision agriculture.

Premise focus on providing ethical, independent, high-quality, innovative and practical solutions that enable our clients to improve the profitability of their business through more efficient and sustainable practices.

We have enjoyed contributing to the intensive livestock industries, broadacre farmers, abattoirs and general agribusiness requirements. Our multi-disciplinary team includes highly qualified agricultural and environmental engineers and agricultural scientists, all with diverse experience in the agricultural sector.

We are backed by decades of experience in planning, executing and delivering major projects for clients across Australia and abroad. Check out our service list below, and explore just some of the recent projects we are proud to have been a partner in.

Data Farming


Data Farming

Data Farming offers streamlined solutions in agriculture, created by industry veterans Peta and Tim Neale. Together, Peta and Tim developed customised technology and software applications that first brought ‘precision agriculture’ into mainstream awareness.

Data Farming now offers a free online app that provides satellite imagery of any given property. Although satellite imagery is not a new concept, Data Farming aims to present this information in a manner that has practical applications. For example, when used effectively, satellite imagery offers a powerful means for farmers to monitor crop growth, crop yield and other cultivation issues.

Premise assisted us in a land capability analysis for a proposed new agricultural project. This project was challenging both due to its nature and the involvement of various stakeholders with largely differing objectives. The skills of the Premise team were extremely well aligned with the needs of the project, and Premise were able to address project issues with an extremely high level of proficiency and practicality.”

- M. Hewitt, Hewitt Cattle Australia Pty Ltd

“From the moment we commenced work with FSA (now Premise), they were professional, knowledgeable, efficient and delightful to work with. Their communication was extraordinary and they worked across a team of different consultants with class. I would highly recommend using Premise for any work involving engineering design and analysis for infrastructure projects in the future. They delivered a high class, accurate, well researched and strategic document that will add value to our industry in the future.”
