Robert Saik

Rob took us on a journey of agricultural advancement that sees us at the dawn of Agriculture 5.0; a convergence of technologies that will re-shape the future of food production.  Agriculture 5.0 is about breaking down silos and interdisciplinary barriers to formulate a new type of agriculture that holds the promise of long-term sustainable food for all.  The “convergence” is about how many technologies are coming together to impact the farm in amazing ways at a speed never experienced before in our sector.

This was a fast-paced, energetic presentation; welcome to Agriculture 5.0.

Join Us Today to hear Rob’s vision for the future of farming and how agriculture will feed the world
