Global population growth coupled with the need to be more sustainable is demanding a higher-level of output from agricultural activities. As a result, there is an ever-increasing uptake in the adoption of technology in agriculture, this trend is set to accelerate as technologies become more resilient in agricultural environments. This creates a growth opportunity for Irelands AgriTech industry. Companies can think big as there is a global market waiting for more effective and sustainable solutions.

The final workshop in this series is scheduled for 23rd June and will focus on projects.
