ISPA Economics Community Event
On the 19th September 2022 the ISPA Economics Community is hosting a special session at the 5th Online Symposium on Agri-Tech Economics for Sustainable Futures (https://www.agritechecon.co.uk/) organised by Harper Adams University, UK. The session is focused on the Economics and Adoption of Precision Agriculture with Dr David Bullock as a keynote speaker. There are 5 other talks focused on precision farming, robotics and automation in agriculture, and digital twin technology in smart agriculture. 
Registration for the whole symposium is FREE for ISPA members. The registration form can be found here: https://www.ispag.org/Events/GIATE
All participants will receive a copy of the symposium proceedings and need to be registered by the 15th September 2022.
ISO Strategic Advisory Committee on Smart Farming (ISO SAG SF):
ISPA is working with ISO SAG SF to identify gaps in international standards related to agri-tech. Specifically, ISO is looking for precision farming experts to advise the following subgroups on: Crop Production, Livestock, Urban Farming, Climate & Environment, Data, OEM, Social and Economic Aspects, Supply Chain, and Terminology. An overview of the ISO SAG SF challenge is available at: https://www.iso.org/news/ref2799.html. If you are interested in being involved, please contact former ISPA president, Prof. James Lowenberg-DeBoer at jlowenberg-deboer@harper-adams.ac.uk.
