With a gross value of $53.6 billion, the Australian agricultural industry is undergoing rapid technological advancement, with an array of new innovations available to farmers to assist them in driving their businesses forward and identifying new streams of revenue.

Advancements in data and technology mean the industry is forecast to double by 2030, with the future of farming an exciting blend of the old and the new; technology and tradition working to complement each other and not compete.

Our line up of speakers will discuss how they are using innovation and new technologies to revolutionise the food chain and increase sustainable food practices.
