We do this by providing a digital platform and a premier agrifood tech event where farmers share their experiences, startups pitch their potential, scientists showcase their discoveries, global business leaders share their insights and industry experts share their thoughts. evokeAG provides innovative news and views from around the world that elevates the conversation and connects the agrifood innovation community, every day. 

 

In 2025 the next edition of evokeAG. is landing in Brisbane, Queensland. The Asia Pacific region's premier agrifood tech event will be held on 18-19 February 2025.

AgriFutures growAG. is a gateway to Australian & global agrifood innovation that aims to

  1. Transparently showcase research projects being undertaken by the RDCs.

  2. Accelerate commercialisation of technologies.

  3. Attract private sector investment in innovation across Australia.

  4. Enable easy navigation of the key people and organisations working within the Australian ecosystem.

  5. Connect information seekers and information owners.

Australian Government -The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF)

The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) works to enhance Australia's agricultural, fisheries and forestry industries. It creates new and maintains existing agricultural export opportunities, to provide gains for Australian agriculture. It manages biosecurity risks to Australia to protect the multi-billion dollar agricultural industries and the Australian way of life.

Australian Rural Research & Development Corporations

There are 15 Rural Research & Development Corporations (RDCs) across agriculture, fisheries and forestry industries in Australia. Each one is tasked with delivering tangible and practical improvements for their industries in terms of productivity, profitability, sustainability, and the community. They do this through strategic and targeted investments in and partnerships for research, development and adoption, and in some cases, market access, market development and promotion. Funding for the RDCs combines contributions from industry, usually collected as levies on production, and funding from the Australian Government.

The Rural RDCs help drive agricultural innovation that benefits industry and regional communities. To find out more, click below.
