AGTECH & INNOVATION
This page is designed to introduce you, as the farmer, to new agricultural technologies that are available to you (or reaching commercialisation) in Australia.
In time, you will be able to read reviews from other farmers about their experiences with the technology.
"Australia will undoubtedly play a role in feeding the future. Though the benefits of agtech have not yet transformed agricultural operations, Australia is rapidly laying the groundwork and building momentum. The potential is there for Australia to soon be a global leader in agtech innovation." Sarah Nolet (AgFunder News)
"AgTech provides a window into the transformative effect digital technology can have on traditional industry. Agriculture has at its heart a powerful connection to the physical world. It is by its nature remote, and by its nature subject to the elements. If there is any industry that could be considered hostile for tech startups, agriculture must surely be it. Yet critical to its prosperity in the coming decades is technological innovation - cloud analytics, AI, drones, big data and autonomous vehicles." Alex MacCauley (Financial Review)
