Elders Presents series continues with focus on AgTech in Horticulture

Elders’ technical services team and partners were joined again by producers from across the country for the second instalment of the webinar series, this time focused on agtech in horticulture.

Key speakers included Pete Breugem from Thomas Elder Consulting (TEC), who spoke about the importance of strategic planning and how to execute it. He provided a method for looking at whole farm strategic planning and ensuring the roots of any issues are addressed, rather than the symptoms.

Joining Pete were Anthony Kachenko from Hort Innovation, Roei Yaakobi from Tie Up Farming, Roop Sandhu, Horticulture Specialist for Thomas Elders Consulting, Rob Stevens from Sentek, and Tom Nelligen from SWAN Systems.

Of the series, Head of Technical Services Graham Page said, “the purpose of this virtual series was really to open up conversation about a couple of platforms that we find really valuable and that have been properly tested and used in commercial settings to prove their value.”

“It doesn’t replace the face to face field days that we hold around the country, but we really hope that these kinds of events make information more accessible for producers and allow them to keep learning about evolving farming practices in spite of the practical challenges posed by the pandemic.”
