Event information/Content overview:
We often hear about the latest and greatest in agtech, but what are the real-world implications for consultants, farmers and industry professionals? And how will this technology influence our approach to weed control and herbicide resistance?
The first in a planned series of North West AIA networking and information events brings together local leaders in the agtech and weeds research space with leading farmers from Western Australia to discuss their approach to technology, and the current applications and availability of the latest in weed control options and how it may improve your business and decision making. Hear from experience in different growing conditions and climates across Australia in Narrabri.
We’re happy to announce Lance Turner and Ray Harrington as the guest speakers from Western Australia.
