Delivering the Future Farm

In the current commodity downturn, which technologies present an opportunity to growers? What challenges do they see coming down the pipeline and how will this put pressure to further optimise on farm operations?  To what extent could advances in AI and robotics bridge the gap in future labour shortages?  What are the right networks that will enable the IoT in agriculture? Where does the telecommunications industry see an opportunity in this space?  How does the industry get to a point where precision ag is transformed into decision ag?
