Growing the network and knowledge
of drought resilient producers.
Scenic Rim Regional Council is pleased to be offering this FREE
Agricultural workshop to local landholders and producers.
This workshop will provide both a good overview of the changing agtech and
innovation landscape, and specific projects and innovations relevant for the
horticultural and dairy industries.
Owen Williams, Manager of Agtech and Logistics Hub will address critical mega
trends, the questions related to compliance and competition, the rising influence
of traceability and biotech, farm automation and the critical element of digital
connectivity. It is acknowledged tech can’t solve problems if it isn’t applied on
farm. Bridging the gap between challenges and problem solvers in the agricultural
sector is the main focus of the Agtech and Logistics Hub.
Attendees will also hear from Angela Elliot, Head of Commercial and Technical at
Multikraft Probiotic Solutions, who will outline why she is persuaded probiotics
will contribute very significantly to the future of farming and provide some specific
case studies related to horticulture and dairy. Angela has experience across
multiple livestock-focussed agribusinesses in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa,
Canada and China; and is keen to hear about Scenic Rim producer challenges and
the problems to be solved. Additionally, Nick Watts from Innovate AG, SERO-X,
will present this widely acclaimed pesticide based on botanical peptide technology
for which he has lead the research and commercialisation process. Nick has over
20 year’s experience bringing new technology to the agricultural sector and is keen
to engage with producers about the weed problems faced on farm.
