The 2016 IoT and AgTech Summit

The 2016 IoT and AgTech Summit

The impact of climate change, a growing demand for food, the inequality of access to suitable land resources and the issue of mass food wastage must be solved. New advances in the Internet of Things could be one answer, with technology offering farmers and others in the agriculture sector the chance to harness data and analytics, real time information about the environment and crops, and provide better farm-to-customer supply chain operations locally and internationally.

The potential of AgTech was the heart of discussion at the inaugural IoT and AgTech Summit on 7 September 2016, co-hosted by the Australia-Israel Chamber of Commerce (AICC) and KPMG Australia.

It looks at:

  • why it's vital that Australia takes a leading position on AgTech
  • how to close the 'yield gap'
  • the new players innovating in the AgTech space
  • the countries that are currently mature with this technology
  • how AgTech can help solve problems of supply and demand on a global scale, and why collaboration could be the key to progress.
