The Event will highlight how digital innovation is impacting on agriculture’s long-term future to a diverse audience; industry representatives, other tech innovators, investors, media and groups of students from schools across central north island. The Event will include a walkthrough of agricultural robotic, drone and on-farm sensor demonstrations as well as other smart AgTech platforms.
