Shaping the future of farming with Aerospace…

Increasingly we are seeing military and space aviation technology appearing in agriculture to grow better food using pictures from the air.  It is part of a trend toward increasingly data-driven agriculture. But what if we could add to these capabilities the ability to more comprehensively assess the water content of soil, become more rigorous in our ability to spot irrigation and pest problems, and get a general sense of the state of the farm, every day or even every hour?   Could this help us clean up our waterways and improve the quality of our soil?

Developing the next gen of NZ’s agribusiness workforce - Blinc Innovation Series

Are you ready for the next 10 years?

The agrifood workforce is changing, rapidly. Although it offers a bright future, with the agriculture industry being increasingly challenged with disruption messages but few solutions outlined for consideration, and with the rise of new capabilities that are required to deal with complex information for decision making, farmers and growers are having to deal with “wicked problems*”

Join us on Wednesday 26 September at our Innovation Series Breakfast as we set out some considerations as to what could be considered to tackle the issues in the agrifood workforce. We’d like to invite the audience to explore this exciting subject with us and start new conservations and spark new ideas together.
