Precision Agriculture – Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture (GFIA) – talk by Dr Peyman Moghadam- Brisbane, Nov 27-28 2018
Showcasing the latest game-changing innovations and technology, each GFIA in Focus event offers 80 suppliers and 2,000 buyers a pioneering forum and marketplace to connect in markets that are expected to experience significant growth over the next few years.
Born with the belief that continuous innovation in agriculture is the only way to sustainably feed nine billion people by 2050, the Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture has emerged as a global authority on sustainable food production, driving innovation through exhibitions and conferences across the world. Since 2014, GFIA events have welcomed over 25,000 visitors and worked with over 50 globally significant partners committed to using the Forum as a catalyst for change.
The Australian Government wants Australian agriculture to become a $100 billion industry by 2030 by ‘growing sustainably’ whereby the industry should aim to be carbon neutral by 2050 and; ‘unlocking new technology’ with a favorable tax and policy environment for innovation, connecting every farm to the Internet of Things, and the co-investment into technology development by the government and private sector.
As part of the Forum’s program, Dr Peyman Moghadam, AgTech Cluster Leader for the Robotics and Autonomous Systems Group at CSIRO’s Data61, who leads the transition of innovative technologies into farms, will part-take in the ‘The Future is Robotic’ panel.
Moderated by Sharon O’Keeffe, National farm Machinery and Agricultural Technology Writer, Fairfax Agricultural Media, the panel will debate on high labour costs and the need to increase yields with fewer inputs.
Farmers and growers are increasingly looking to integrate automation and mechanisation into their production systems. Robot technologies are forecast to bring even more efficiencies to traditional farming practice and equipment.
This panel will discuss the latest innovations and developments in robotics across agriculture and what solutions will be available to farmers in the near future.
