There are many food production challenges and opportunities for technology developers to provide solutions for. Whether you have extensive knowledge of the agri sector or are new to the market, it is important to involve the end-user when developing your technology to ensure greater adoption and impact on-farm.
Farms are variable in size, soil type, system, infrastructure, suppliers, standards and much more. Therefore engaging with relevant audiences in the design, development, testing and validating of agri- technology helps to identify the potential issues you may face when commercialising your agri-technology. This workshop will highlight the ‘how’ and ‘when’ to involve the end-user and real case-studies from tech developers.
