Technology that ‘eats your lunch’ doesn’t suddenly appear from nowhere; although it can be an inspirational idea it has often taken decades to get to market.
A good way to check what is on the horizon is to keep abreast of the research that is coming out of the labs. The Agri-Tech Research Digest provides a snap-shot for you of research that is being done to deliver outcomes.
For example featured research includes:
- Automated bailer for use in controlled farming
- Use of aerial imaging to predict crop yield in iceberg lettuce
- BlightSense – a rapid biosensor system for in-field early detection of potato blight
- Improving water uptake in sugar beet.
