Tackling the challenges of the ever-evolving agricultural technology field will require companies large and small, as well as regulators, to work in collaboration, experts agreed at a conference on Monday.
“A lot of drivers force us to change – climate change, growing population,” said Oded Distel, director of Israel NewTech.
“For all those good reasons, we must change and do things differently from the ways we used to.”
Distel was addressing participants in the third AgriVest Conference, during which panelists focused on agricultural technology and investment needs for the future, placing a particular emphasis on the sector’s rapidly changing environment and resultant needs for cooperative advancement. Such progress can pose a variety of impediments due to escalating costs, patent ambiguities and increasing demands, but behooves stakeholders to think collaboratively, experts agreed.
