Agriculture 101 2020

The unique one-day introduction provides some insights into the agriculture sector, the opportunities it presents and some of the challenges that are still seeking solutions.

Agri-food production is a growing industry that offers opportunities for the application of technologies and services developed for and by other industries; however the successful implementation of these solutions requires domain knowledge.

This day-long learning event will offer the opportunity to find out more about the drivers, opportunities, challenges and needs of the industry, how your tech can help and how to get it into the hands of farmers.

Who is this for:

  • Individuals who are working with a technology that would like to explore whether there is a place for it in agriculture
  • Companies considering agriculture as a new focus for business
  • Individuals working in an agricultural related business in non-agricultural related roles, PR, accounts etc, who would benefit from understanding the wider sector more
