Background: Agri-food is an important industry, with the UK agri-food supply chain contributing £97 bn to the economy in 2012. Major challenges face the sector: feeding a rising population, climate change, and the need for sustainable intensification.

“Modern-day applied mathematics can be used with high impact on farm systems and precision agriculture. It provides excellent decision-support tools and brings a degree of rigour to the industry, which has often been lacking in the past. The agricultural industry has been relatively late in choosing to bring mathematics to bear on the processes involved”

- Prof. Graeme Wake, Massey University, New Zealand, Mathematics in Agriculture KTN Workshop (2015).

Format: Representatives from industry will present their problems on the first day. Researchers in mathematics, statistics, engineering, computer science and related areas will work together towards practical solutions, and first steps in approaching problems. Early-career academics, PhD students, and postdocs are particularly welcome.

The Problems: The problems to be tackled by the Study Group attendees will be set by SME’s from the Agri-Food sector (from primary production to food processing). The problems (likely to be three) will be announced in due course.
