Christmas is coming and what does the industry want to see Santa deliver for agri-tech? We’ll be hearing from experts from the plant breeding, agronomy and agri-engineering industries about what they would like to see being routinely adopted by farmers and growers to help make them more profitable, productive and sustainable. It might be the banishing of panto villain Count Blackgrass from the kingdom, or access to a handful of seeds to grow a beanstalk that fixes nitrogen AND gives great yields. Or would you prefer to sleep for 100 years while your farm runs via the Internet of Things?!
We can’t promise you’ll find what you want under the tree on December 25th but we will make sure that Santa’s research elves hear YOUR agri-tech wish list for Christmas this year.
With a festive flavour to this Pollinator (mulled wine and mince pies will help the networking) this is a light-hearted seasonal opportunity for farmers, scientists, researchers and technology to share their ideas of what new innovations would make their Christmas.
