Within 50 years the world will have another 4 billion people, presenting a huge opportunity for Australia to harness agribusiness technology, or ‘AgTech’, and grow our share of the global food and agtech market. Australian farmers are already on the way – using drones, driverless tractors, tracking the movements of their livestock with wearable technology, and embracing big data analytics.
In this episode of The Next Five Years with Bernard Salt, Salt looks at how Australia can play its part in feeding the world in a sustainable way. He is joined by Andrew Bulmer, Managing Director of Bulmer Farms, Ros Harvey, Founder and Managing Director of AgTech start-up The Yield, and Amanda Goddard, Associate Director, KPMG, as each brings a unique viewpoint to the debate.
This StartupAUS report, co-authored by KPMG, outlines insights and key recommendations for the future of AgTech in Australia.
