AgTech

The agriculture sector is undergoing a major transformation. Technology has surged into agriculture, replacing traditional practices, challenging long-held assumptions and refreshing our understanding of what defines farming. Automation, high-speed communication, artificial intelligence, unmanned aerial vehicles, big data, interconnected machinery, and cloud analytics offer previously unachievable leaps in agricultural processes. Technology enables improved productivity, quality and yield and information that enables farmers to make better decisions.and an opportunity for the economic benefits of technology to bring prosperity to rural communities.

The Plus Eight AgTech startups will be housed in Spacecubed’s purpose-built AgTech Hub, working with industry leaders, farming cooperatives and government agencies to enable faster growth and better technology integration into established agriculture techniques.
