Event description

Description

The global agribusiness market is growing exponentially. Soaring population growth and demand for food is driving new technologies and efficiencies to manage finite resources and increase productivity. In fact, it’s been estimated that 60% more food will be required to feed the world’s expected 9b strong population by 2050 (Source: The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN), and that Australia’s AgriTech industry could by then be worth as much as 100b (Source: StartupAus).

But what are the necessary components and who are key players in the ecosystem to enable Australian AgriTech to reach its full potential?

Join us as an expert panel discusses how Australia can scale and reach a global market by leveraging digital and emerging technologies, and the current trends shaping the global agriculture industry including precision agriculture, connected supply chains, IoT, robotics and data science.

This event will also feature a startup showcase featuring a handful of local, innovative businesses working to equip farmers with the smart tools, big data and localised knowledge they need to make timely on-farm decisions, drive productivity and set the benchmark for sustainable practice.
