Agri-futures have released two new reports focusing on emerging technology in Agriculture: Emerging technologies in agriculture: Consumer perceptions around emerging agtech undertaken by GHD and AgThentic and Emerging technologies in agriculture: Regulatory and other challenges by ACIL Allen Consulting.

AgriFutures Emerging technology in agriculture reportThe first report states that the adoption of emerging technologies is expanding at a greater rate than the consumers capacity to understand the opportunities. The report contributes to better understanding the substantial impact that consumer perceptions can have on the adoption of agricultural technology throughout the value and supply chain, especially as it relates to the top ten transformative technologies in agriculture.

The second report recognizes the development and convergence of technologies is occurring at a faster rate than regulation. The report provides information to equip government, industry and RDCs with a better understanding of regulations needed to manage the adoption and uptake of emerging technologies, as well as the opportunity cost of getting it wrong.

Both reports are available for purchase from AgriFutures.
