Minister of Agriculture announces AgTech roadmap
The Minister for Agriculture and Industry Development and Minister for Rural Communities has officially announced the development of an AgTech roadmap for Queensland led by the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF). Digital technology creates an abundance of opportunities to add value to the agricultural sector by working more precisely, efficiently and sustainably. It offers innovative ways to connect producers to consumers, reduce problems related to remoteness in rural communities, and attract the next generation to jobs in the industry.
This roadmap will lead and shape Queensland’s strategic direction for AgTech development and accelerated adoption. DAF has engaged BDO Services Pty Ltd to provide support with the consultation and development of this roadmap.
Key to the creation of the roadmap is collaboration and input from stakeholders and parties across the AgTech ecosystem. As such, we invite you and your stakeholders to get involved by participating in the online collaboration hub, completing the AgTech survey or attending one of the face-to-face forums planned across Queensland.
