Some feedback from a cross-section of the audience: "It was a most enjoyable and informative couple of days for Michelle and myself and I feel that we gained a lot of information into how we should further implement Precision Ag in our own business without making it too complicated” - Gavin and Michelle Hooper (Corrigan Farming Group Western Australia) "The conference was excellent and I learnt far more than I ever imagined!” - Peter LaFranchi (Shepard International Media Group) "David Thank you for putting on a professional run two days. It was my first and will not be my last. I got enough ideas to make me look for at what I am doing on my Sugar cane farm just north of Cairns. We have just started using a EM38 I am surprised what is miss from our soils when you go below the surface“ - Mark Savina (Sugar Farmer, North of Cairns)
Some feedback from a cross-section of the audience: "The symposium was great. You and your fellow scientists are right on the cutting edge and the presentations by the technocrat farmers who have adopted the science was a blessing to see” - Frank Mulcahy (Senior Agronomist Simplot Australia Pty Ltd) "The conference was most informative and enjoyable. There was a great spirit throughout. I sense that PA is about to take off and have a very bright future” - Martin Keye (Vice President-R&D, Topcon Precision Agriculture) "While it is a great opportunity to have researchers and scientists interfacing, I would not like to see the conference dumbed down in an aim to attract more farmers. However, it would be good to ensure that all speakers understand and consequently report to the whole audience” - Emma Leonard (Agri Knowhow Media)
