Precision Agriculture


What has Siri got to do with agriculture?

We all know Siri, but did you know farmers are using smartphone technology, drones, self-driving cars and more right now?

From the Horizon Summit, RIRDC presents a group of passionate young people from the city and from the country talking about the cool tech in agriculture!

Special thank you to David Lamb (UNE) for working with us.

This is one of seven podcasts produced at the Horizon Summit in June 2016 with the support of SYN Media. Young farmers and agricultural science students from around Australia convened for the summit and shared their views on the future of agriculture. 

This podcast was produced by Alana Martin, Amy Carpenter, Alex Trinder, Matt Champness, Xavier Burton, Royce Pitchford, Sam Knight and Isaac Jones
