THINGC ROBOTICS TO SHOWCASE THE FUTURE OF AGRICULTURAL ROBOTS

With the rapid increase in the global population, there is an expectation that there will need to be a dramatic rise in agricultural production, doubling to meet the coming demand. Many farmers are now turning to agricultural robotics as a solution to this problem, as the rise in AI and new developments with the technology are allowing farmers to realise greater profit, diversity and efficiency.

Australian company thingc Robotics are at the forefront of agricultural robotics. TECHSPO delegates will have the privilege of meeting one of their prototypes.

THE “WEED CHIPPER” HAS THE POTENTIAL TO CHANGE THE FACE OF FALLOW WEED CONTROL

A new mechanical weeding machine may help change the face of fallow weed control across Australia’s broadacre grains industry, and TECHSPO delegates will have the privilege of seeing the technology in action.

The Weed Chipper is the outcome of 3-year GRDC funded project and has been touted as the next answer in the fight against herbicide-resistant weeds. The project’s engineering lead, Dr Guzzomi, will be demonstrating its capability and presenting at this year’s conference.

OUR REGIONAL COUNCILS CONTINUE TO SUPPORT AGTECH INNOVATION IN WA

This year, TECHSPO will be bringing technology developers, farmers, advisors, expert researchers and officials together for two days of advanced agriculture technology, information sharing and collaboration, and regional councils continue to throw their support behind the growth of AgTech innovation in the state through their support and sponsorship of the conference. 

Their continuing support of TECHSPO indicates their strong commitment to continued growth and investment in our regional areas.
