AGRICULTURE TECH FORM 2016

Unveiling Australia’s AgriTech Potential
BLUE CHILLI, SYDNEY
14 July 2016

Agriculture is almost universally agreed to be one of the sectors where Australia can take a lead in technology innovation and gain competitive advantage. With the goal to double agricultural output by 2030, sensors and data analytics capabilities are expected to be deployed in every step of the value chain.

The Agriculture Tech Forum provides an in-depth examination of the state of  agtech in Australia and globally, drawing upon professional experiences of keynote speakers and panellists. Expect good representation from various Australian, particularly NSW, agriculture bodies as well as global corporates and financial institutions all highly engaged with the future of the agtech revolution.
