The Farm491 enterprise hub resonates with young farmers – to drive our industry forward we need enthusiastic, dynamic individuals who are forward-thinking and pioneering. Technology in agriculture has a fundamental role and for our farming sector to feed a growing global population, technology will become even more integrated.
