LINKFRESH partner Dialog & Microsoft Australia Sponsor AUSTRALIAN GFIA Event
27-28th November, 2018
LINKFRESH partner Dialog & Microsoft Australia are major joint sponsors in this AUSTRALIAN GFIA event.
Welcome to the Future of Farming in Australia
The Australian Government wants Australian agriculture to become a $100 billion industry by 2030 by ‘growing sustainably’ and ‘unlocking new technology’. Home to 23,000 farms, the Queensland Government has taken a bold step in supporting this strategy by announcing that it will double agricultural output in the State by 2040.
Against a backdrop of continued drought and these calls to raise productivity, farmers, growers and agribusinesses need to implement sustainable agricultural technology, and they need to do it now.
To give food producers across the country access to the latest innovations, the Queensland Government has invited the award-winning Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture (GFIA) to host its first trade fair in Brisbane from 27-28 November 2018.
Hosting an exhibition and conference, GFIA in Focus Australia will present the latest innovations and technologies for smart agri-production across two key areas:
- precision agriculture and smart farming;
- and controlled environments and protected cropping.
2,000 tickets are being given away to food producers, policy makers, scientists and investors who want to improve the productivity of their farm, agribusiness or
sustainable agtech programme.
