David Farquhar, CEO of IGS, will be part of the panel discussion.

Panel topics include:

  • How are policy holders embracing and integrating indoor farming as an established viable food source for consumers?
  • With so many technology options available to farmers is there a need for a blueprint standardised development method? Would this stifle innovation and choice?
  • How to maximise resource efficiency in CEA operations?
  • How are we developing the balance between human labour and machine labour in the farm?
