South Australia to Learn Ag-Tech from Israel
South Australia’s Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development Tim Whetstone travelled to Israel as part of an Australia-Israel Chamber of Commerce Trade Mission, writes Teresa Umali at OpenGov Asia. According to a recent press release, the top agenda for this trip is the opportunities to grow South Australia’s AgTech sector.
AgTech, which looks at how digital technology can improve food production, has been identified by the South Australian Government as a key growth area. It will help South Australian farmers boost agriculture to an AU$ 100 billion industry in Australia by 2030.
