Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development David Basham recently announced two new start-up hubs with one located on Eyre Peninsula. The Hubs are an initiative to grow more grains, meat, milk, wool, fruit and veg by enhancing the adoption of agricultural technology by farmers across the state.

The Eyre Peninsula start-up hub will utilise the Minnipa Agricultural Centre and Farm as a focal point for development and commercialisation of AgTech that supports broad-acre cropping and sheep production systems.

The new start-up hubs will specifically support entrepreneurs in developing innovative technology capabilities, so they can help farmers solve critical agricultural industry challenges.

Expressions of interest are now being sought from AgTech entrepreneurs who would like assistance to develop and commercialise their ideas. For more details about the start-up hubs, or to register an expression of interest to be involved in the hubs, visit:
