Keeping it clean with agri-tech innovation

Tuesday 19th January @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Activated air, electrolysed water, free radicals – all provide alternatives to chemistry for sustaining the life span of fruit and vegetables, improving the quality of seed and reducing risk of contamination in food processing.

As international pressure grows to reduce the reliance on chemistry, we’re looking at different solutions to keep it clean, from “seed to sandwich”. Join us and be part of the discussion about how agri-tech is keeping the agri-food chain clean and healthy.

Putting the N in FarmiNg—SolutioNs for On-Farm NitrogeN Production

Wednesday 24th March @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Pressure is growing to find new ways of producing nitrogen and reducing dependency on chemical synthesis of this important nutrient via the Haber process. Harnessing biological and physico-chemical approaches to the problem is yielding some exciting opportunities for production of alternatives to synthetic fertilisers. Join us and learn how to make fertiliser from air and water, fix nitrogen from the air into soil, and how to provide a nitrogen turbo-charge for fields.
