Event description

Description

Context

How can we farm “smarter” and what is the role of new technologies in helping that happen? Do you want to know what smart farm technology is available now? We have handpicked some of the most exciting farm applications, precision farming and imaging technologies and will be asking the companies behind them to pitch their offering to you.

Agri-Tech East is working with the Smart AKIS project to help bring new innovations in Smart Farming from around Europe to our members and the wider UK agricultural ecosystem.

Content

The workshop will focus specifically on technologies around aerial imaging and precision agriculture. With short presentations by a range of companies and organisations with ready-to-use smart farming technologies, you’ll also have input into discussions to identify the needs and opportunities of farmers and innovators to make smart farming a commercial reality. At a regional and national level we’ll be looking at how to overcome barriers to adoption of smart farming, finding the untapped opportunities, and ensuring the outputs of the discussions about these new technologies get to the heart of policy-making..

Who Should Attend

Farmers and growers, researchers and technology developers, agronomists, advisers and consultants as well as SMEs, start-ups and network organisations looking to accelerate the adoption of smart farming technologies.
