ECPA 2017During the opening session for the 2016 ICPA we heard presentations from two precision agriculture conferences that will be held in 2017.

The first up was the 11th European Conference on Precision Agriculture.

It is 20 years since the first ECPA conference and the UK organisers are pleased to welcome the return of the conference to the UK and to Edinburgh. The conference will continue with a successful format of previous conferences building in strong industry sessions and participation. The theme of ‘Innovating through Research’ will enable all involved in Precision Agriculture to participate.

ACPA 2017Next on the program was the 7th Asian-Australasia Conference on Precision Agriculture.

The Precision Agriculture Association of New Zealand (PAANZ) invites you to the 7th Asian-Australasian Conference on Precision Agriculture (ACPA). The Organising Committee is honoured to host the Conference in New Zealand during the Southern Hemisphere’s spring months.

Research on information-based livestock production systems is progressing rapidly. In light of this, we are also organising the first Asian Australasian Conference for Precision Livestock Farming (1ACPLF) in conjunction with the 7ACPA. This conference succeeds the Australian New Zealand symposium series on Spacially Enabled Livestock Management (SELM) and introduces additional research and technology topics.
