AgTeCH19: Build it, Use it, Profit

Emerald, Queensland

The third annual AgTeCH: Build it, Use it, Profit was held in Emerald on 6 November, 2019.

The event was sold out, with more than 260 people turning out for this major innovation and technology event for the Australian agricultural community.

Thank you to the many volunteers and business supporters who made AgTeCH19 a resounding success!

AgTeCH19 brings together the smartest minds at the intersection of agriculture, machinery and technology to explore the future of agribusiness and showcase the latest innovations to improve farm and business profitability.

Unique in format, attendees have multiple opportunities to pose questions and challenges to interactive expert panels, visit relevant trade displays, and view and test technology and machinery working in the field.

In 2019, our panels focussed on early stage and commercial applications of Automation, Robotics and Drones and IoT (Internet of Things) and Connectivity, and CHDC welcomed back respected journalist Peter Lewis to MC the event.

2019 again concluded with in-field live demonstrations of agricultural technology in action, including SwarmFarm, John Deere, DAF drones in research, T3RRA Precision Terrain Solutions, PLF Australia and mOOvement's beef "smart farm".

Networking took place at the end of the day with the Pioneer V-Net BBQ back at the Emerald Town Hall.

AgTeCH19 was followed the next day by the free GRDC Farmers2Founders (F2F) Growers as Innovators workshop, also in Emerald.
