Robotics in Horticulture
Digital technologies have the potential to increase productivity, reduce waste and improve the efficiency of the agriculture sector.
The La Trobe Research and Innovation Precinct in collaboration with CSIRO invites you to the second webinar in our series highlighting how growers, companies and researchers are progressing the use of robotic systems in horticulture production, harvest and postharvest operations.
Hosted by La Trobe’s Digital Innovation Hub, this 1 hour session showcases practical uses of robotics in horticulture from regional Victoria and the path to commercialisation for innovative Australian robotic research.
