Agri-Tech Week 2021: 8th - 12th November 2021
Agri-Tech Week 2021 provides opportunities to meet potential collaborators, customers and partners within the agri-tech ecosystem and includes the REAP conference on Wednesday 10th November 2021.
The programme for 2021 is being finalised but below you can read about what happened last year.
Agri-Tech Week 2020
ADAS hosted: Use of crop sensing in field vegetable and potato crops
This event showcased the use of crop sensing in field vegetable and potato crops.
It was delivered as part of the EU Interreg 2 Seas INNO-VEG project (www.inno-veg.org). The INNO-VEG project is developing a new approach for carrying out research on field vegetable and potato crops by using crop sensing data to assess treatment differences.
Agri-TechE hosted: REAP Conference 2020: From micro-scape to landscape – innovating at the frontier
Managing complexity is the biggest challenge for agriculture, as every variable – from the microbes in the soil to global weather patterns – can impact productivity, profitability and sustainability.
Agri-TechE is at the heart of a vibrant agri-tech innovation ecosystem, and this year’s REAP conference is taking a farmer-centric view of the emerging approaches and technologies that promise improved decision-making at every level.
AHDB hosted: Technologies to enhance soil monitoring and crop management
The Rotations Partnership, is a collaboration between industry partners and four research organisations, looking at the impact of rotations on crop yields. The aim is to gain a better understanding of how fundamental changes in soil characteristics impact crop performance.
Norwich Research Park hosted: Crops and non-chemical pest control – genetics, environment and biodiversity
The aim of this event was to explore the complex interactions between crop, pest and non-chemical controls in a changing climatic and regulatory environment.
RNAA hosted: Back to reality? Pushing the boundaries in agri-tech and innovation
The global COVID-19 pandemic has triggered a rapid transformation in communications and connectivity. This has accelerated changes that were already underway in agriculture. The RNAA hosted a webinar that tackles the issues and implications: How have the new conditions affected the industry? How much is here to stay – or is this just a passing phase? Does the ‘new norm’ open up new opportunities and, if so, how can these be exploited to benefit knowledge exchange and innovation in agriculture?
