Speakers included Agristart managing director Natasha Ayers, Grubs Up co-founder Paula Pownall and Rabobank agricultural analyst Wesley Lefroy.

Farmanco adviser and Pingrup farmer Mae Connelly, Planfarm consultant agronomist Hilary Wittwer and Meckering farmer Ty Fulwood were also on hand to speak about innovative apps used within the industry.
