Lunch (12.00pm to 2.00pm)
Much of the technology that has underpinned the last 20 years of agricultural productivity gains has started to plateau. Robotic technology has the potential to drive the next wave of agricultural innovation across the industry.
With robotics already established in the mining and manufacturing industries Andrew will discuss how industrial automation and robotic solutions are transforming agriculture to be more efficient and increase farming production and profits.
