Friday 26th October 10.00 - 16.00


WSGA invites you to join us as we examine the next and most important evolution of commercial horticulture, where machines, devices and sensors connect and communicate with each other.
 
Where growers’ decision making is assisted by contextualised information, and production tasks are automated and supported by cyber-physical systems capable of autonomous decision making.
 
This is “Horticulture 4.0”, as we adopt and adapt the automation, innovation and robotics emerging in “Industry 4.0”
- the smart factory
