What we're about
This is a group for anyone interested in link between food, agriculture and technology: smart farming, sensors, software, big data, robotics and so on. From farmers and producers with no knowledge of technology to tech people who do not know anything about agriculture, all skill levels are welcome. The Agtech Meetup strives to bring technology solutions to make agriculture more productive, profitable and sustainable. AgTech is defined as the collection of technologies that provide the agricultural industry with the tools, data and knowledge to make more informed and timely on-farm decisions and improve productivity and sustainability.
Modern AgTech sets itself apart from the ongoing historical technological contribution to agriculture because of the speed with which the technology can scale and reach a global market.
AgTech, biotech, genetech, foodtech, and food ecommerce are all important elements of the integrated value chain. AgTech specifically, though, operates almost exclusively in the initial input and production phases.
