Australia must find a way to take advantage of the opportunities offered by AgTech – but it needs to remove some of the barriers standing in the industry’s way first.
That’s the feedback from a group of ANZ agricultural customers and business owners after they saw world-best practice firsthand on the recent ANZ agri delegation to Asia.
Speaking to bluenotes during the delegation, Citrus Australia Chair Tania Chapman said the infrastructure needed to support AgTech has the potential to provide huge cost and efficiency savings to the sector – and increase profitability
“One of the biggest things in not just my industry but agriculture in Australia is the very high cost of production that we have,” she said. “So we need to find way to uptake the new innovations, the new technologies to gain some efficiencies in that.”
” In terms of agtech and implementing that into a marketplace, China and Japan have us hands down.”
