Farmer-centric innovation is core to the REAP conference and rate of technology adoption is increasing, judging by the speed in which cutting-edge agri-tech featured in the Start-Up Showcase is becoming operational in the field. The farmer-tech session last year, in which early adopters discussed the challenges of introducing new tools and processes, was particularly insightful.
REAP has been the launchpad for many successful collaborations and having a good representation of farmers to shape the discussions is key. To enable as many farmers as possible to attend we have a number of REAP bursaries available for farmers and students in full time education in agriculture or a related science, sponsored by AF Group.
“The REAP conference is a great opportunity for farmers to keep on top of, and engage with, the numerous emerging technologies in Agriculture, helping to direct and shape farm businesses for the future,” says Cambridgeshire farmer Tom Pearson, who is speaking at REAP 2021 having attended last years’ conference with help from the AF Group’s sponsorship.
Big thank you to all of our REAP sponsors AHDB, the AF Group, Missouri Partnership and Rothamsted Enterprises for their generous support.
REAP 2021: Changing Time(s) for Agriculture – 10th November 2021
Imagine a world where agriculture is not constrained by time. The ability to manage and manipulate time is increasing and REAP 2021 will explore the advances in technology and breakthroughs in science that is making this possible.
REAP brings together people from across the agri-tech ecosystem who believe that innovation is the engine for change. The conference bridges the gap between producer needs and technology solutions and showcases exciting agri-tech start-ups.
