Agri-Tech and ELMs - the innovation enablers
Tuesday 22nd March, 10:00 - 16:00
As the UK government starts the transition to Environmental Land Management (ELM) we look at the emerging agri-tech that will enable farmers to measure, monitor and manage change to increase their natural capital assets.
At this event hear from farmers and advisors that have participated in early trials and from the technologists and researchers that are developing techniques and tools to assist them.
Struggling to create a baseline for carbon capture? Want to understand your soil health and how to improve it? Considering water quality testing? Want to measure uplift in biodiversity? Thinking about carbon credits? Join the conversation.
Inspirational speakers - farmers, advisors, retailers and technologists at the cutting-edge
An interactive event to challenge, inform and inspire, including:
- 10 minute case studies from the ecosystem – soils, water, woodland, biodiversity and ecosystem services
- Innovation Insights – technology enablers for ELMs
- The ecosystem speaks – a buzz session with input from the floor
- The role of the supply chain – the retailers view
- Insights from the consumer
- Update on the latest Test and Trials pilots
Agri-tech for ELMs
Technology for measuring, monitoring and managing environmental resources
Speak directly to the companies providing technologies enabling farmers to improve their environmental performance:
- Trinity Agtech will discuss Sandy, a digital assistant that helps farmers measure the sustainability of their farm business
- Agreed Earth helping regenerative farmers to connect
- Hummingbird Technologies uses AI, drone and satellite tech to extract actionable insights from mapping
- Timac Agro and SWL offer advice on soil amendments
- Soil Moisture Sense and Howseman Agriculture provide smart irrigation technologies
