AgTeCH20: Build it, Use it, Profit (Mungindi)

Date to be advised 2020

The smartest minds at the intersection of agriculture, machinery and technology meet at AgTeCH20 to explore the topics at the heart of future agricultural productivity and profitability, and showcase the latest innovations for farmers and agribusiness in Northern NSW and Queensland.

AgTeCH18 (Mungindi) was held in March 2018 and sold out with 265 people attending representing 2 million ha of production. Alongside cutting-edge speakers, AgTeCH20 will feature the cohort in StartUp Alley, pitches in the program, and can be viewed in the in-field demos. Together the AgTeCH Mungindi and AgTeCH Emerald events showcase invention and innovation in the regions and provide networking, learning and business investment opportunities.

Unfortunately the April 2020 event was postponed due to COVID-19, but the Mungindi Cropping Group plan to bring it back before the end of the year, as soon as it safe to do so.

AgTeCH19: Build it, Use it, Profit (Emerald)

Wednesday 6 November 2019

AgTeCH has become the largest regionally-based, dedicated agtech event in Australia and a significant event for agriculture generally across northern and eastern Australia. Run by CHDC and a volunteer committee of local agtech businesses, the event sold out again with nearly 270 people attending, 44 exhibitors and 8 fully-operational in-field demos.

In 2019, the interactive speaker panels focused on early stage and commercial applications of Automation, Robotics and Drones and IoT (Internet of Things) and Connectivity. The ten teams selected in the inaugural cohort of CHDC’s AgFrontier: Regional AgTech Incubator showcased their businesses in trade stalls in a “Start-Up Alley” at the event. They also featured in the event program, presenting a short (3 minute) introduction to their businesses between panels.

More than twenty secondary school and university students attended a special networking coffee to personally meet and connect with the AgFrontier cohort prior to the event at the “Start Up Alley Lounge”.
