Agritech and IoT – Progress in Rural Connectivity

Progress in Rural Connectivity

Please join AgriTechNZ and the New Zealand IoT Alliance to explore the potential for connected agritech solutions in our primary industries.   

The growing focus on the environmental impact of farming has led to an increased use of IoT to optimise fertiliser, power and water use.  However, one of the biggest challenges is the connectivity of devices across large areas of Aotearoa’s productive land.  How can improvements to rural connectivity be accelerated?  We ask the experts!   

AgriTechNZ and the IoT Alliance are hosting a panel of speakers to share their experiences, projects and aspirations for the future of IoT in agritech.  We will discuss large scale IoT and sensor deployment projects, plus proof-of-concept trials.  New infrastructure initiatives and the evolving role of satellite connectivity will also be discussed.
