Next Gen AgTech

Names of the Future Young Leaders for evokeAG 2024 have been announced. Five young and emerging leaders who are building cutting-edge solutions and knowledge for a more sustainable and productive Australian agrifood sector and supply chain have been selected. Representing Western Australia is 29-year-old Guy Coleman (pictured) who created the OpenWeedLocator (OWL) – a low-cost, open-source DIY weed detector to improve accessibility to precision agricultural technologies. He envisions establishing a global open-source weed detection ecosystem that empowers rural communities and the agricultural sector to drive technological innovation. With a background in precision weed control and a Fulbright Scholarship, Guy is committed to democratising access to precision farming and knowledge sharing, with users of the OWL already in Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany and more. The Future Young Leader Program provides participants with a unique platform to voice their exceptional ideas, innovations and research projects to a global audience.
