Minister Paul Fletcher, Fiona Simson from the National Farmers’ Federation and Gavin Williams from NBN Co recently launched the joint NBN and NFF Connecting Australian Agriculture paper.
The paper brings together industry experts, including our own Community Manager Stephen Dummett on Page 20, to explore the power of connectivity to enable a $15.6bn digital agriculture opportunity for Australian farmers.
At the AgTech and Logistics Hub, we believe solving the Connectivity Challenge is the first step towards harnessing the digital agricultural revolution. The next big opportunity for Australian agriculture is with a new generation of connected tools which enables things like remote sensing and automation. This helps farmers and graziers save time, grow productivity, and make more informed decisions.
