Emerging technologies in agriculture

Client: AgriFutures


In 2016 AgriFutures developed a series of fact sheets about emerging technologies that are anticipated to change the way agricultural products are made, marketed and transported. The fact sheets focus on: sensors, artificial intelligence, gene editing, nanomaterials, robots, synthetic biology, the Internet of Things, and 3D printing. 

This report builds on AgriFutures work in two ways:

  • it revisits the technologies and refreshes the list of those that are anticipated to have a significant impact on Australian agriculture
  • it surveys Australian and international research to expand the understanding of the regulatory issues these technologies may raise.
