The next era of farming will start with taking full advantage of data, says LIC chief executive Wayne McNee.
The event will be hosted by the University of Waikato's Management School in Hamilton on Tuesday, April 5.
The talk, 'The future of ag-tech with Peter Wren-Hilton', is open to alumni and members of the public. Numbers are limited, so register online at http://bit.ly/ceealumnievent.
Wren-Hilton is the founder of The Meteoroid Program, an accelerator programme that helps Kiwi start-up ag-tech companies to connect with entrepreneur and investor networks in Silicon Valley, and get them ready to launch on the global market.
Wren-Hilton says emerging new digital technologies - such as robotics, drones, sensors, digitalisation and big data - are having a significant impact on agri-business opportunities, and will enable Kiwi companies to become even more profitable, productive and sustainable on a global scale.
