Join us at our 13th Annual Conference, a meeting of technologists, farmers and their many support providers where you can engage with leading researchers and practitioners.
Havelock North Function Centre 20-21 May 2015
“The mechanical farm of 2030″ was presented in 1981 by John Matthews of the UK National Institute for Agricultural Engineering Describing a farm fifty years in the future, soil quality and alternative machinery featured strongly. Computers and robotics were becoming available but GPS, internet and wireless were not.
In 2015, with all the benefits of knowing what happened in the last 35 years, we revisit the issue. Are John Matthew’s predictions of technology on-track? And importantly, what must farmers do to ready themselves for next year, five years and fifteen years down the track?
As we seek to achieve efficient crop production, we need to manage variability. What are the drivers, what tools can help us? How do we link technology and agronomy?
Leave LandWISE 2015 with new understanding of where technology has taken us, where current development is opening possibilities and which things may yet be some way off.
Day 1: Wednesday 20 May Automation and sensing
Day 2: Thursday 21 May Monitoring and managing variability
