Agmentation 2018 will focus on new innovations which effectively ‘game-change’ the measuring of productivity of livestock (including fish stocks) and pastoral assets.
Professor David Lamb and his colleagues in the Precision Agricultural Research Group have listened to producers and identified the 2018 mission as one of the top priorities for agricultural producers that has the potential to unleash improved practice and profitability outcomes.
