There is an increasing need for highly skilled people with technical know-how and a truly innovative outlook in order to maximise the potential of agri-tech. We hope that, at New Scientist Live, we will be able to tell this story to show that there is an exciting and tech-driven future for agriculture and for those who choose to work in the industry.”
