Transforming Australia's innovation ecosystem is key to growing our agricultural sector 

Our agrifood tech sector is exploding and investors across the globe are wanting to sample our ideas and solutions which are boosting food and farm productivity. 

Our
evokeAG event was born out of a burgeoning of Australian agrifood tech ideas and innovation, enthusiasm from emerging leaders, and the need for investors to have a single place to see the best of what we have to offer. 

This month we share how we are living up to
our vision to grow the long-term prosperity of Australia’s rural industries - through innovation highlighted in events like evokeAG and through research across our rural industries.

You can catch up on research updates about coffee, chicken meat, honey bee and pasture seeds in this July newsletter. Our
People and Leadership programs are also humming along with the annual AgriFutures™ Horizon Scholarship and Rural Women’s Award workshop bringing together the movers and shakers of our agricultural sector. 

The game of agriculture is changing. Innovation is key.
