AGRI-TECHE NEWS UPDATE
Would it be possible to produce nitrogen fertiliser on-farm and reduce the agricultural sector’s greenhouse gas emissions? Early-stage agri-tech companies Atmonia and N2 Applied say it is. They have developed alternative approaches to generating fertiliser in a shipping container using renewable energy sources; offering the potential for carbon neutral production.
Breedr, Small Robot Company and Cellular Agriculture were among the top global agri-tech companies listed in the FoodTech 500 report by Forward Fooding.
Controlled Environment Agriculture is a vibrant sector that is attracting significant investment. Our event on 25th February is an opportunity to explore its feasibility for different sectors, review the latest technology and be inspired by some of the pioneers. To get you up to speed we have created an overview of CEA with comments from across the ecosystem.
A new era of decision support tools is making it possible to understand the complexity of food production for the first time and to begin to see how the system can be improved at every level. Latest developments in the vibrant agri-tech ecosystem are captured in the new REAP report.
Productivity, Growth, Nature – farmers are talking about how to maximise the first without compromising the latter.
“This feels like a tipping point”, says Chris Brown, Senior Director of Sustainable Supply Chains at ASDA.
