Farm businesses are complex and operate in increasingly volatile business and natural environments. Farm business owners’ and managers’ goals and objectives, and the resources available to the business, also evolve over time in response to changing business environments and social norms. The farming industry as a whole is also facing huge challenges, from rising costs of supplies, a shortage of labour, and changes in consumer preferences for transparency and sustainability, as well as an increased focus on the environmental impact of farming.
Meeting these challenges will require a concerted effort by governments, investors, farming businesses and farmers, as well as possibly using innovative technologies such as Visual Internet of Things (V-IoT), drones, robotic and artificial intelligence, big data and blockchain. This session is set up to initiate a conversation on the above topics and bring together government officials, founders, investors, researchers, and farmers who are envisioning and building the future of farm technologies in Aotearoa New Zealand.
